  1. As Dominica shared with us, we must share similarly. Fits PM Modi excellent ‘vaccine diplomacy’ program. India also giving Caribbean leaders opportunity to receive publicity one to another.

    We have NOT lost doses, we were promised 40,000 from India and we received then as 5,000 from India via Dominica and 35,000 from India.

    Unfortunately the PM / Cabinet are not always clear in their communication to we the people.

    • Really, so it was not 5k via Dominica AND 40k from India.?
      So in reality it’s 35k after donating to Barbados?
      How do you know this?

      • Barbados was the first island to receive vaccines from India and vaccinate a large number of its people. Now all the Caricom states are getting vaccines from India which is a good thing.

  2. Donating a donation?

    So Antigua are donated vaccines because they can’t source themselves and then they start to distribute to Grenada? Joke me tell u

  3. As a Grenadian, I have to ask, oui papa, bonjay- Why so much comess in Antigua? You get the vaccines free from India as donation, and the Indian plan was to distribute free vaccines all over the Caribbean. So the vaccines are simply being moved from one country to the next, same way Dominica send you vaccines free. So stop being selfish, and share with you fellow Caribbean brothers and sisters in this time of pandemic!
