Antigua seeks Russian, Chinese and Cuban vaccines and more

21

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.

    • The Chinese vaccines have inoculated millions upon millions of people to date without issue. The Russian vaccine has been hailed in the Lancet and by Europe as first class. Germany and France are trying to get the Russian vaccine. People are dying regularly now in Antigua. If we wait for the WHO to approve these vaccines, we will be waiting for months while people die. Not good enough.

    • @ Stay Alert:
      WHO? REALLY? That political Chinese Organization.The leader of that “thing” is in the pockets of the Chinese.It took them over 1 year to go into Wuhan.WHY? Then they came and told us.The Virus did not start in the Lab in Wuhan.After all the evidence already garne.

      • Dude… you’re really a troll as in many other comments. Please drink yourself and peace… If it’s not WHO approved how would the government get it into this country though? Hope you and your family will get any “approved” vaccine soon.

      • The Chinese have no regard for their own people much less any other. You don’t have to be a “TRUMPer” to see this.

      • And you sound like and idiot what does Trump has to do with the distrust for the Government and their long standing sub quality standards .

      • Sekunda X: Perhaps you should move to China for a month.Then come back and tell us.About your experiences on the grounds in China.

        • I had the experience of spending a month in China several years ago. I must say that i was rather supprised by the misinformation that i was fed about the general appearance and economy of China. Having had that experience, I am now contemplating a visit to China in the near future (after we regain control over this endemic) to learn from their enonomic prosperity.

          • @Economist, being on one of those courses doesn’t count. Your hosts will obviously show you the best time. I find it amazing that China can continue to offer all these “free” money to wine and dine people from other countries, when so many of their people are living in poverty. I’m sure you have also heard about what’s happening over there now with their rounding up of muslims etc. There’s a sinister plan behind China’s kindness. Just ask anyone from Taiwan.

  1. Personally I would go with the Communist Chinese Government Version, after all they
    Created the VIRUS one would think they have the CURE !!!!!!SW

  2. The Caribbean has its Human Resources. Where are the doctors from UWI, Cuban Universities, and the few medical universities in Dominica? Why are we depending on second rate ‘vaccines’ that even the manufacturing countries are refusing? Those counties are making vaccines for their people ,not our genetic make-up!!! Come on Caribbean leaders, this is the time to rise and shine. Why are you not putting your big PHd brains together? Let’s make our own vaccines and distribute to OUR people. How many of us has to die for you to wake up and smell the bush tea? Wake ‘Leaders’ and lead!!!!

    NB** No political agenda here just asking for a 4 year old…

    • One of which is intranasally administered

      Personally that’s the one I’d want

      Remember protein subunit vaccines are one of the traditional types of vaccines that’s been around for decades.

      Adenovirus vector vaccines and MRNA vaccines are being used for the first time with this disease.

      I’m glad to see Antigua reaching out to Cuba for vaccines

  3. Dictator and traitor Gaston took Moderna.

    That’s what we should be getting too.

    Where are Nigel Christian’s murderers? Why haven’t they been caught? No one seems to be doing anything about finding his murderers now. This stinks of high ranking officials involved.
