  1. Who’s next for this next experiment? All these vaccines and none can confirm which works and which have detrimental side effects and how many times you need to get jab.

  2. Public confidence is a hell of a thing whether you are in Antigua or America. Frankly, the PM dropped the ball by not being transparent with what vaccine he got and when. Who will believe that Chinese residents are the first to get the Sinopharm vaccine? That said, Antiguans and Barbudans should get vaccinated. Asking Dr. Simon your well learned Pathologist to stay in his lane is silly political talking and not a solution for covid. I encourage all citizens to use the power of their vote to ensure that they are not getting the Russian Sputnik in one arm, and the Chinese Sinopharm in the other. I get the economics in the country. I don’t get the country having more different manufacturers of vaccines than ingredients me granny Maudie used in she pepperpot.
