  1. The population of Antigua and Barbuda in 2020 was 97,929.What the overall numbers are showing 47,960 fully and partially Vaccinated. What percentage of the total population are eligible to be Vaccinated?

    • The US is about 70% vaccinated and the COVID numbers and deaths keep going up, up, up.

      Israel is even more vaccinated and the cases are increasing as well.

      These vaccines are not going to stop the pandemic in Antigua because they havent been able to stop the pandemic anywhere else.

      There has been somewhere that figured out how to win against COVID. It’s the Uttar Pradesh state in India which has applied a test and (early) treat strategy that is working amazingly.

      • Only 63% of Isreal population is fully vaccinated. USA is still far away from herd immunity. When 75% of the population is fully vaccinated it will take a while before the numbers of infected person begins to drop, that is because vaccines take weeks to work. Your body need to develop antibodies against the virus and that does not happens overnight.

  2. That’s the same thing is happening right now more vaccination more deaths, More lock down more poverty, nearly 2 years into a lock down and nothing has changed. How long will we tolerate this ? 400 years ago haven’t thought us anything , we are being sold out , oppress by our leaders who cares only for themselves. Continue to fear death which is Inevitable or continue to live In slavery which is preventable.

    • @ Wake Up, slavery was abolished in Antigua in 1834, 187 years ago, and Antigua didn’t achieve true economic freedom from the planter class and King Sugar until the late 1960’s and we gained independence in 1981,. Technically we are only 40 years removed from slavery, and we still swear allegiance to The Crown.

      Freedom is a construct of the mortal mind to make sense of an insane world.

    • Somehow I think there is something at play here to keep the Johnson and Johnson off the market so the MRNA vaccines can have the monopoly. Think about it. Most people would go for a one jab vaccine.
