Kralendijk- Bonaire is ready to start its Covid-19 vaccination campaign. This morning, the first health care worker, nurse Henna Winklaar, got the first Covid-19 jab on the island.

Together with the vaccination of Health Care employees, the registration for residents 60 years and older has opened up. Registration can be done either by calling the special 0800-0800 number, or by going to to register online.

Bonaire in total has over 600 Health Care employees.
