President of the Supermarket Association, Rajiv Diptee, is pleased with the first day vaccination exercise involving frontline supermarket and pharmacy employees.
Over 500 workers turned up to get their first jab of the Sinopharm vaccine at the Centre Point Mall, Chaguanas on Tuesday.
Diptee said the vaccination drive began with just a few “teething issues,” but he is confident that his association will be able to administer all of the Sinopharm vaccines allocated to them in the coming days.
He added “We are very grateful for the support, we have seen a great sense of unity and a great sense of output from our people all here to take the Sinopharm vaccine,” he said.
This vaccination drive was established by SATT and is one of the private public partnerships in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
The first to get off the ground with their private public vaccination drive was the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturer’s Association.
