Aruba’s recovery seems to be on the right track. Tourists are excited to resume traveling and are searching for travel destinations that have a high percentage of their population vaccinated. A destination where they can be assured that the spreading of the virus is limited or at a minimum. Aruba is now the island in the Caribbean with the highest amount of vaccinated people per 100 inhabitants and in second place in the world as the best-vaccinated country. This is certainly reason enough to feel proud as a country and also encourages those who have not yet received their vaccine to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
The sooner we get to a herd immunity between 75% and 85% of the community, the sooner we can start with the recovery of our tourism and our economy.
Since April 28, 2021, there is no need to wait for an appointment to receive your vaccine. Those who have not received their first vaccine can register on the Aruba Health App or www.dvg.aw or www.arubacovid19.org and simply walk in at either the vaccination location at Santa Teresita Center or the Centro Libertador Betico Croes for their first vaccine. Individuals who cannot register on any online platform can walk in at the vaccination centers, register, and receive their vaccine right away. For the second vaccine, it is important to receive this according to the scheduled date. So far Aruba has reached 54% of the 18 years and older objective to be vaccinated and everyone older than 18 years who did not receive their vaccine yet is encouraged to get their vaccine as soon as possible by just walking in, register, and get vaccinated to help the recovery process of our island.
