  1. Wait, it not just over the weekend the Pfizer vaccine came to Antigua? Did the pharmacetical body get to even see it yet? Mercy, they at lightning speed this now. The Sputnik V was here more months waiting approval, wonder why Putin did not ask back for his vaccine.

  2. Get ready! The Lambda variant is on its way from South America. They say that it is contagious as Delta while evading vaccine efforts.

  3. Let Sir Rolls Royce and the rest of the ministers take them and see what happens down the line with him.
