Any private entity can purchase the COVID-19 vaccine for their employees once certain criteria are met.
This is according to the Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh following a release from a local company which stated it will be acquiring the shots for its staff.
Mr Deyalsingh says government welcomes any initiative by the private sector to vaccine employees and clarifies that it is allowed, under certain conditions.
However, Mr Deyalsingh warns that employees cannot be forced to take the vaccine.
