Minister: Only 10% of prisoners have agreed to be vaccinated


    Only 10 per cent of the prison population has agreed to be vaccinated.

    Due to this, the Minister of Health says they are now working with the Prison Service to encourage more prisoners to take the jab.

    Terrence Deyalsingh at Saturday’s Health Briefing noted that enough vaccines were allocated to inoculate all prisoners.

    Meanwhile, this weekend a vaccination drive is also being done to inoculate URP and CEPEP workers.

    Minister Deyalsingh outlined the other groups that are being targeted for vaccinations.
