Vaccine supply woes


    T&T’s hopes for COVID-19 vaccines from the US have been hit, following news of a possible contamination issue at a production facility.

    Recently, the US announced that up to 60 million doses of the AstraZeneca jab would be distributed to countries around the world.

    During a media conference today, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley said there was bad news out of Baltimore, which is home to a vaccine production facility.

    Regarding vaccines elsewhere from other manufacturers, Dr Rowley said they simply are “not available”.
