The Cabinet has received assurances that 66,000 doses of mixed American-produced vaccines will arrive Antigua’s shores in a few weeks.
Among the batches will be the Pfizer vaccine.
It is the intention of the Cabinet to ensure that as many students, age 12 and older in 4th and 5th Forms, receive the vaccine; the new Delta strain of Covid-19 is capable of infecting children.
In order to create a safe environment in school, and to reduce the disruptions which arise whenever a Covid-19 case is detected in a student within his/her classroom, as many twelve to 17-year-old youth will be vaccinated.
The precise start date cannot be determined until the vaccine arrival dates are known, and efficient systems worked out to enable vaccinations at school plants.
