Correction Re: COVID-19 Vaccines Received from Barbados
Port-of-Spain, February 17th, 2021: The Honourable Terrence Deyalsingh, Minister of Health wishes to correct a statement made during the media conference today, Wednesday 17th February, 2021 concerning the vaccines received from Barbados.
The Minister confirms that the 2,000 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine were, in fact, a gift given to Trinidad and Tobago from Barbados. This was generously provided from the stock of vaccines that the Government of India provided to Barbados for their use.
The Minister of Health was unfortunately misinformed and apologies for this error.
The Minister also offers his deepest gratitude to the people of Barbados for this kind gesture of regional collaboration.
