The United Workers Party (UWP) is urging citizens to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus, as Dominica’s Vaccination Programme gets underway here.
In an interview with Kairi News, Senator Annette Sanford of the UWP referenced the proven successes of various vaccines against diseases.
Sanford revealed that some members of the UWP decided to hold off on being vaccinated in order to gain more information on the vaccine.
While Dominica’s President, First Lady and some other members of Government have been vaccinated, Sanford believes more time is needed for public education before the Vaccine Programme rolls out for citizens.
She proposed a pointed, community- based approach to the Public Education Programme.
