CMO urges all inoculated residents to take the booster shot

Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr. Rhonda Sealy-Thomas is urging residents to get their booster shots at any of the vaccination centres across Antigua and Barbuda.

The public roll-out for boosters commenced today, December 16, for persons over the age of 18.  However, Dr. Sealy-Thomas says that others persons, including those who are immuno-compromised, began receiving their third shot since early December.

While some healthcare professionals have recommended the mixing of vaccines, the CMO says that persons should try, as far as possible, to take the drug they first got.

Going forward, she says that Antigua and Barbuda, like the rest of the world, has to be prepared to live with the COVID-19 virus for many more years.

The CMO also encourages those who are yet to be inoculated to do so immediately, especially since there is a new, highly transmissible variant.

  1. Why don’t she take them all her own damn self. They just need to stay tf out of peoples lives. For real

  2. “While some healthcare professionals have recommended the mixing of vaccines, the CMO says that persons should try, as far as possible, to take the drug they first got.”

    This CMO may be unfit for this job. The above comment flies in the face of what is now the consensus amount researchers: a mixed-vaccine regimen generally provides better protection.

    And in the last week or two it data has come out suggesting that some vaccines (AstraZenca, J&J, Sinopharm) provide little or no protection against Omicron. Two doses (original 1 shot + booster) of J&J will not help you very much. At present it is unclear how much a third shot of AstraZenca will help against Omicron, but we already know that 2 Astra + 1 Pfizer or Moderna provides better protection than 3 shots of Astra.

    In light of what we now know about mixing vaccines, the CMO’s recommendation really calls for an explanation.

  3. Smh I have read research an it stated that the new virus out there weaken the jabs so what kind a nonsense bis this now I already taken the dam vaccine both two shots,an now Yu all want person to take the jabs kmt I not putting no more of these crab in my body am done. This is enough I have enough of this!!!!!!!!!

  4. What if after all this a new virus breaks again you all gonna come up with more helpless vaccine give black ppl a break we have enough

  5. Patriotism used to be when u sacrifice urself for ur country. Nowadays its when the government sacrifices u for their county

  6. I am so proud of my fellow Antiguans who are now WAKING UP to all this booster and vaccination nonsense pushed by people like the Chief Medical Officer Dr Rhonda Sealey-Thomas. However, she won’t tell you about what 60,000 scientists have just signed up to:

    60,000 SCIENTISTS HAVE CALLED FOR AN END OF THE WORLDWIDE MASS VACCINATION PROGRAMME.

    Recently in France’s press, a call to stop the current vaccination programme becomes ever louder as 60,000 scientists have signed up to halt the current Covid-19 mass vaccine approach.

    Called the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD), a growing army of rebellious-minded infectious disease epidemiologists, other scientists, physicians and public health experts came together to compare notes about their GRAVE CONCERNS associated with the risks of PHYSICAL and MENTAL health impacts associated with Covid-19 mass vaccination programmes.

    The GBD group favours what they call “Focussed Protection”.

    GBD have no political affiliations, and represents both the left and the right of politics, and also the full spectrum of nationalities and disciplines. Furthermore, this group of scientists and researchers claim that the current lockdown policies are devastating communities, both in the short and long term.

    Hopefully, this ONE LONE VOICE of Dr Rhonda Sealey-Thomas will now pay attention to the 60,000 medical experts that say that what she is doing is TOTALLY WRONG.

    REMEMBER FOLKS, TO KEEP LISTENING TO THE INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXPERTS, AND NOT THOSE WHO ARE PAID TO TOW THE GOVERNMENT LINE …

    AGAIN, MUCH RESPECT TO ALL CRITICAL THINKERS IN ANTIGUA AND AROUND THE GLOBE. PEACE-OUT!

  7. Information is out their alot of people are blind to the truth or playing blind because of fear. Death is inevitable, scientist are expermentist they don’t know the answers to all its trial and error they cannot guarantee who dies and lives. We have to learn to live with covid. A strong immune system that has been designed by God is already boosted for past, present and future sickness. Mankind will always fail and be deceptive for their personal gain.

    People need to wake up, think for themselves.

    They said 2 shots full protection 3 shot 4 shot, after every shot there is a new variant, how many individuals are willing to become a drug addict. If these gene therapy would have stop the spread more people would have taken the experiment.

    It is better to die in freedom than to live in system with captivated minds.jb

  8. Thou shalt not die was a deceptive phrase when a cunning serpent wants to beguile you. Now we hear the pharmaceutical companies with the same serpent 🐍 symbol and phras encouraging everyone to jab it protect from hospitalisation and death.

    All I am seeing is pure manipulation,deception to get a vax but nobody cares about starvation
