“It would sadden me greatly and it would be enormously if our people don’t take the vaccine because there is no scientific reason not to take the vaccine and the history and experience of vaccines contribute to our wellbeing, I go over it all the time,” Gonsalves said.
Prime Minister Gonsalves then went on to draw reference to vaccines that have been developed in the past their impact on the health of humanity.
