By Aaron Humes: Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat announced this afternoon that while the Ministry of Health does not consider its efforts to vaccinate the population against COVID-19 “an abject failure” thus far, we can certainly do better than approximately 79 thousand first doses and 26 thousand full vaccinations.
Next week Wednesday, the Ministry will present a re-launch of the National Vaccination Campaign under the theme “Before you relax, get vaxxed.”
Vaccination will help the country’s economy return to near-normal; revive the flagging tourism product; and with the capacity to store Pfizer vaccines which are accessible to children 12 to 18 years of age, enable in-person education for this sizable portion of the population.
We’ll have more later, including what the Minister said his Ministry is doing to reach the remotest populations, and what U.S. charge d’affaires Keith Gilges is pushing Washington for to help.
