Head of the Prison Officers Association, Ceron Richards, has dismissed claims that only 35 percent of prison officers are vaccinated.
Speaking with Power 102 Digital this morning, he claimed to have seen no data survey to confirm this figure.
Mr Richards said while the Association will motivate officers to get vaccinated, it will not tell officers whether to get vaccinated or not.
Mr Richards added that the Association has provided information regarding the vaccine and educated officers so that they can make quality choices.
He said this should be the national approach in which people are educated and encouraged rather than threatened to take the vaccine.
