  1. Amen! Glad to read that the USA; which some you like to cuss out. Has stepped up and are now sharing there vaccines with the Caribbean. Everyone should make an informed choice as what is good for themselves, family, friends and the community they live in.

    • Better late than never. Of course it had to satisfy itself and it’s rich friends before turning to caricom states.

        • @ CHUPIT
          Thank God for Hon. Gaston Browne .Best Prime Minister in the WORLD .CHUPIT you will be complaining for the next 30 years. UPP will never see power in Antigua again.

          • ERIC ( THE RED ) I will remind you when he get voted out. You will starve then as you will have no batty to kiss. Your slave master will have to sell you for money.

      • Gaston was always citing Israel as an example of a country that reached herd immunity. Now Israel is experiencing a third and maybe fourth wave of the virus. We really need god’s help as this virus is going no where, vaccinated or not.

        • It just shows, that we need more than heard immunity. We need full immunity. Cause as the virus mutates our vaccines become less and less efficacious against it. Note that this virus is still new, and we are learning more and more of it. And we have no idea where the end of it is. And those anti-vaccers will prolong this even more. That why they are start calling it the pandemic of the anti-vaccers.

      • Just let the ignorant be ignorant. They are already falling like flies. Totally unnecessary. We warmly thank the Biden administration for their caring thoughtfulness.

  2. The kill shots will not to be given to the children ,first give it to the elderly they’re at risk, the virus don’t affects the kids now give it to the children. Too much lies back and forth

  3. When people in the Caribbean are injected with two doses, I hope the governments have the money to pay for the third dose and annual doses. It has been reported that the efficacy for this vaccine is good for six months which is why Israel is now vaccinated its citizens with a third dose. There is also the question of whether the mRNA vaccines are responsible for the shedding of the virus and the increased number of vaccinated people catching the virus. There are too many unanswered questions with the mRNA vaccines and I hope the governments think hard about what they are injecting in their people as there could be a ton of trouble in the future.

  4. Big Pharma in still on the move. These companies are already raking in #BILLIONS in profits from these vaccines.
    Along with the donated vaccines to help calm the mayhem, they should also be sending billions of USD as #GRANTS to aid in rebuilding Our economy’s which their laboratory experiments are destroying systematically.

    Will the #BoosterShots be #Free or these are just the #Give-Away SAMPLES to draw you in to use their products?

    By the way, WHO has declared, that there are at least Seven(7) other Wuhan Ninja Mutants running around. They even have names(albeit military) at the ready.

    It’s like they’re predicting Hurricanes and have the list of names ready for each Mutant.
