Senate President recommends vaccine after losing mother to COVID-19

Senate President Williams Grant

President of the Senate Alincia Williams-Grant revealed that her American citizen mother was one of the more than 500,000 people who died from COVID-19 in the United States.


“Within a week of contracting or being exposed to this dreaded disease, I lost my dear beautiful mother before she could be vaccinated.


So, this is very personal,” Williams-Grant said at the budget debate on Tuesday.


The Senate President said her mother’s death highlighted the need for people to protect themselves from the worst effects of the virus by getting vaccinated.


“If you have the opportunity to take the vaccine to protect yourself, to protect your family, to protect your mom, do it and thank the government of Antigua & Barbuda that they are doing their darndest to get this available to all of us,” she advised.
