Cabinet Notes: The Ministry of Health is seeking to have five other vaccines—a. the SputnikV from Russia, b. the Sinopharm from China, c. the Soberana2 from Cuba, d. the Pfizer, and e. the Moderna vaccines from the USA—authorized for use.
The Antigua and Barbuda Pharmacy Council, as the law requires, is authorized to approve the use of vaccines.
The AstraZeneca has already been approved by the Council.
The 40,000 additional doses of the AstraZeneca, manufactured in India and to be gifted by India, will likely arrive Antigua before February 28.
The mechanisms are being put in place to distribute the vaccines to clinics and to private doctors among others; one condition of the free supply to private medical practitioners is that no-one is to pay for the service or the product.
The vaccines’ dissemination among the population must be cost-free, the Cabinet decided.
An additional 100,000 vaccines are being sought from India.
