Supermarket workers and pharmacists to get vaccinated

    0

    Supermarket and Pharmacy workers will be vaccinated against COVID-19 in a drive that begins this Tuesday at Centre Pointe Mall in Chaguanas.

    This is a private-public partnership between the Supermarket Association and the Ministry of Health to vaccinate frontliners in the supermarket sector and pharmacists in the private sector.

    The Association says the Ministry has made thousands of Sinopharm vaccines available towards the sector, since supermarket employees are at direct risk for transmission of the virus and deserve priority at this time.

    It adds that a digital registration platform has been established, which has been shared to its membership with overwhelming subscription feedback.
