Opposition Member of Parliament for Naparima, Rodney Charles, is questioning why there is no easily accessible vaccination site for students within Naparima in Wednesday’s roll out.
MP Charles says this comes in the wake of the recent announcement there are fourteen centers to vaccinate children throughout Trinidad and Tobago.
In a media release Tuesday afternoon, MP Charles claimed not one center is in Naparima.
MP Charles said the closest center for Naparima constituents is the Pleasantville Technology Centre in San Fernando.
The Opposition MP said it would take almost sixty-five dollars for a child to travel to Pleasantville and back home.
Lengua to Princes Town twelve dollars , then Princes Town to San Fernando twelve dollars and then eight dollars to Pleasantville.
MP Charles said when you add the fare for a parent or guardian to accompany them, and any other siblings, to be fully vaccinated with two doses can cost a family of four at least five hundred and twenty dollars.
