SATT close to administering 50,000 jabs

The Supermarket Association (SATT) is close to administering 50,000 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine.

SATT director Maria Mohammed-Maharaj, in an interview with GML, said there is still some hesitancy among workers in the sector. However, supermarkets that sent some of their staff to the SATT’s first vaccination programme are sending more.

“Some of the same stores and chains are still sending their employees who saw that their colleagues got vaccinated and want to come aboard. But there is still hesitancy among staff,” Mohammed-Maharaj said.

The SATT vaccinations continue tomorrow and Thursday for people wanting their first dose of the vaccine at the Centre Point Mall in Chaguanas. Walk-ins will be taken between 9 am and 4 pm on those days.

Mohammed-Maharaj said they would be doing some stock taking to determine the exact figures for the first and second doses since they started vaccinations on June 8.
