Divisional Commander in charge of District ‘A’ Superintendent Cromwell Henry says he is doing well after being one of the first persons to receive the AstraZeneca Covid19 vaccine on Monday.
Vaccines, as with all medicines throughout the world, must go through extensive and rigorous testing to ensure that they are safe before they can be clinically approved for global human use.
St. Kitts & Nevis’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Hazel Laws, said that the procurement in the first instance of 21, 600 doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine, will provide coverage for 20 percent of the national population.
Minister of Health, the Hon. Akilah Byron-Nisbett is assuring the public that the Astrazeneca Covid-19 vaccines that the federation will be receiving shortly are absolutely safe.
