The Department of Health says it currently does not have the capacity to offer vaccines on a full-time basis on weekends.
Deputy-director general, Dr. Nicholas Crisp says the Department does not have enough man-power to operate vaccination clinics on both Saturdays and Sundays.
Crisp encourages residents to go for their vaccinations during the week, or on Saturdays, where there are clinics in operation.
