Further restrictions and key points on vaccinations – 20,642 citizens received their first Sinopharm jab

The Attorney General, Faris Al-Rawi will look into adding further curfew restrictions for the upcoming public holidays.

Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley announced today during the Media Health Briefing at the Diplomatic Centre, that the Attorney General will add further restrictions for a daytime curfew for Indian Arrival Day and Corpus Christi.

Dr. Rowley said this measure will be in place to limit the movement of citizens during the day; with the exception of essential workers, all citizens are asked to remain at home.

10,000 additional AstraZeneca doses have been acquired from the Government of Grenada and will be collected by the Air Corps tomorrow.
The government has confirmed a supplemental order of more than 100,000 Sinopharm vaccines – far in excess of what was previously received; as a consequence of this, the Ministry of Health has been directed to utilize all 100,000 previously received Sinopharm vaccines as first doses without the need for any withholding for second doses.
This pool of 100,000 persons will now receive their second jabs from the forthcoming shipment from Sinopharm.
As at yesterday, 20,642 citizens have received their first Sinopharm jab.
The Second dose rollout for the AstraZeneca vaccine will begin from June 7. They will receive this via 5 mass vaccination sites throughout Trinidad.
