    • These vaccines have not done any of those things anywhere in the world.

      Israel which is highly vaccinated is having a worse outbreak than before vaccination started.

      But I guess Antiguans believe magically these flawed vaccines will work in your country.

  1. Mr. PM, Please get us the Cuban vaccine!! You have so much mouth and waving your finger bully at us, why not wave that same finger and mouth of yours to WHO and CDC to approved our Caribbean scientists’ vaccine from Cuban. Let them know that your people are in dire need of the Cuban vaccine. Yes, vaccines are here on the island that we can choose from but we want Cuban vaccines just like we have Cuban nurses and doctors here. We have the right to say what we want because we hired you and your ministers to work for us. So, do the job or you get fired coming next election.
