Prime Minister Dr Hon. Ralph Gonsalves while speaking on radio discussed the future availability of the COVID-19 vaccine within CARICOM.
“There’s a matter of the availability of the vaccine to countries all over the world”.
He noted that in CARICOM, they have been working together with the WHO and with the GAVI, which is the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations.
“So that, we in a sense can try to protect ourselves from what we call vaccine nationalism, those who have a view of America first and therefore it is produced it must be for Americans first, or whichever country”.
I just used America, because that’s so close to us and it’s such an important country in relation to the production of the vaccine.” Gonsalves said.
