Health Advice

Seychelles’ National COVID-19 Immunisation Campaign was officially launched on the 10th January 2021, with the President of the Republic of Seychelles, H.E. Wavel Ramkalawan leading by example, to become the first Head of State in Africa to take the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine. 

With such a robust vaccination program, Seychelles aims to be the first country in the world to vaccinate at least 70% of its population over 18 years, allowing us to declare Seychelles as being COVID safe and reopen our economy. 

Seychelles remains amongst the top of the list worldwide for daily COVID-19 vaccine doses administered per 100 people.

In the efforts to curb the spread of community transmission, the Ministry of Health released a Revised Public Order within the Public Health Act, 2015.

Employment

Following the economic impacts of COVID- 19, the Government has introduced several employment programmes to assist people with training and placement in different organisations.

  • The Skills Development Programme places young people who have not completed secondary, not secured placement at any professional centres nor completed a training course in different workplaces, where they receive on-the-job training based on their interest and available work opportunities.

  • My First Job Scheme caters for graduates from professional centres to enter the labour market as job openings become available. The scheme is also an incentive for employers to recruit graduates who have completed their studies. Under the program, Government subsidies 40% of the salary paid who are employed by private companies for a period of one year. The refund is capped at SCR 7000 a month. Find out more here
