UK Government Donates a Further 5000 doses of Astra-Zeneca to Antigua and Barbuda

The British High Commission St John’s is pleased to confirm the UK has donated a further 5000 doses of Astra-Zeneca to Antigua and Barbuda.

The doses will arrive on Saturday 6 August.  The UK previously donated 12,000 doses of Astra-Zeneca to the twin-island nation in August 2021.

Resident British Commissioner, Ms Lindsy Thompson, said “this donation reinforces the UK’s commitment to supporting Antigua and Barbuda’s fight against COVID.  The nation’s vaccination rates are some of the best in the region, but no one is safe until we are all safe.  In keeping with the advice from the Antigua and Barbuda Ministry of Health, Wellness and Environment, I encourage all eligible citizens and residents to get vaccinated and/or boosted.”

The UK has been at the forefront of the global response to Covid-19, including through investing £90 million to support the development of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

Over half a billion doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine have been
delivered at a non-profit price globally, with two-thirds going to lower and middle income countries.

The UK also kick-started efforts to establish COVAX in 2020, providing a total of £548 million to fund vaccines for lower income countries.

  1. Our Prime Minister is a thoroughly DESPICABLE human being.

    The UK is dumping the AstraZeneca (also widely known as the clot shot) vaccine on us, because they rarely use it themselves.

    Remember, the completion trial date for this particular drug is on the 14th of February 2023 – and Gaston Browne and all his health ministers know this.

    To my fellow citizens of Antigua & Barbuda, here again are the serious adverse effects of AstraZeneca:

    Menstrual disorders; strokes; Myocarditis; facial paralysis; neurological issues; Pericarditis and Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), especially in young males.

    Our PM has NEVER warned Antiguans about the above mentioned dangers, and yet, he continues to accept them from other countries.

    This nefarious and lying man has to be voted out of office.

    It is bad enough that he is making us suffer economically, but know he’s attacking our health with this latest maneuver. Nasty!

    WHAT MORE PROOF DO WE NEED THAT THE PM DOESN’T CARE ABOUT ANY OF US …

    STAY SAFE AND ALERT MY FELLOW CITIZENS!
