Dr Rhonda Sealey-Thomas

Chief Medical Officer Dr Rhonda Sealey Thomas says authorities are not opposed to vaccinating people below the age of 18.

Dr Sealey Thomas told a Ministry of Health news conference yesterday that this is dependent on whether Antigua and Barbuda gets the vaccines which have been tested on that age group, namely Pfizer.

  1. When you are willing to put children at risk to achieve your goal of so called “herd immunity”,
    knowing you have no long term data of the harm these vaccines may cause, you are reckless and devoid of medical ethics.
    They are willing to make children in to lab rats for 💰. Shame, shame, shame on all of you!

  2. Each vaccinated all manipulated, a lot of guess work, one time the virus is so smart would not interfere with the children next time it’s another story.

  3. My understanding is that a drug can only be authorized for use in a population where the benefit of the drug far outweighs the risks in that particular population. If this is the case, then vaccinating children in order to protect adults – even it could be proven that doing so did have a cocooning effect – could be illegal and, possibly, unethical.
