Trinidad and Tobago: The leader of the opposition party– UNC – Kamla Persad Bissesar, during the virtual meet, stated that vaccination is the only measure through which Trinidad and Tobago can defeat this deadly virus.

Opposition leader asserted, “We support vaccination as a priority in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic, as this is the only accurate measure to bring the virus down.”

The leader also asked people to consult their doctor and added, “In this regard, we recommend that you consult your doctor because each person’s health is different. So consult your doctor and make a decision, but vaccination is a priority at this time.”

Kamla further also requested the government to take all the essential measures to get sufficient vaccines for T&T’s population.

Showing the concern, the UNC leader cited, “Already we are way under our own CARICOM partners here, in terms of the numbers vaccinated, in terms of the percentage of our population.”

“In this regard, in accessing vaccines, I know Prime Minister Rowley threw his hands up in the air when last he spoke that we couldn’t get vaccines, and that has been his cry all along that there are not sufficient vaccines. Well, PM, – pride cometh before the fall.”

Bissesar concluded and asserted, “Put your pride away and write to the United States or call upon the United States because US President Biden has announced that they will be giving away more vaccines. So in addition to those they announced before, the President is saying they have more vaccines they would like to donate.”

“So Prime Minister, I call upon you, and indeed I take the bold step to ask the United States to please send some vaccines to Trinidad and Tobago,”- UNC leader.
