by December 14th, 2021

A study by Northern Caribbean University (NCU) has found that healthcare professionals and tourism workers are the two occupational groups with the highest vaccination numbers.


The study titled ‘The Views of Jamaicans on their Decision to be Vaccinated Against the Coronavirus Disease 2019’ surveyed a sample of 1,075 vaccinated people across Jamaica from September to November 2021.

It found that respondents in certain occupations are 1.9 times more likely to be fully vaccinated, leading with healthcare workers at 21.7 per cent, followed by tourism and entertainment workers at 15.8 per cent.


Lead researcher Paul Borne noted that students are the least likely to be vaccinated.
