Ministry surveying side effects of Vaccine in Antigua and Barbuda


The Ministry of Health, Wellness & The Environment has intensified its data collection exercise from persons who would have been vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine (AstraZeneca).


The Ministry is aware of the likelihood that persons having received the vaccine may experience some side effects, which are a part of any vaccine administration.


The Ministry is therefore advising the public that a group of individuals has been tasked with contacting persons who have been vaccinated via telephone to collect this information.


It is important to note that data collection post vaccination has been an ongoing exercise with the assistance of the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (WHO/PAHO) through which the Ministry of Health and by extension the government procures all vaccines used in the Expanded Program on Immunization.


The data collected will be analysed by the Ministry of Health and shared with the public.


The findings from the analysed data will also be periodically shared with regional and international public health partners including the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) and Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization PAHO/WHO .


If you had any concerning vaccination symptoms following your COVID-19 vaccine, speak with your physician or call the COVID-19 hotline at 462-6843 weekdays only, to report your reaction and to seek guidance.

  1. Why bother? The findings will be ‘the side events were not related to the vaccines’… That’s the official line in all the other countries that has been collecting data. No one has been found to be harmed from these unproven gene therapy aka vaccines…16 and 17 year olds dying of heart attacks after the jabs…’no links.’Telling the truth would mean they would have to stop vaccinating people… so they lie..
