Electronic vaccination certificates coming

July 20th, 2021

People awaiting their electronic vaccination certificates should now have their wait time reduced, following the donation of 27 Dell Rugged laptops to the Immunisation Unit by The Massy Foundation (Barbados).

The purpose-built devices were designed at a cost of approximately BDS$155,000 and are expected to improve the co-ordination and efficiency at all vaccination centres across the island, including the Mobile Medical Unit.

The donation took place this morning at the Masonic Centre, Salters, St. George, one of the designated vaccination sites.

Chairman of The Massy Foundation, Everton Browne, explained that the laptops would be used “to run specialised software in the various phases of the COVID-19 immunisation administration, distribution and overall logistics processes”. They will also be used to issue vaccination certificates to fully vaccinated persons.
