Trini children to receive COVID vaccines from today

Children between the ages of 12 and 18 years of age will begin receiving their jabs from the Pfizer vaccine in a matter of hours.

The vaccination centers are all located in urbanised parts of the country broken up into geographical blocks North, South, East  and Central.

But for some MP’s including Siparia MP and Opposition leader Kamla Persad Bissessar, the selection of sites is geographically discriminatory against large sections of the population.

She said this will be an impediment for parents who reside in remote and marginalized areas.

The Opposition Leader said that there were many schools that could have been used to ensure a more equitable distribution of sites for the nation’s children.
