On Jun. 9, citizens thronged health care centers following an announcement assuring immediate immunization for all persons without underlying disease.
On Saturday, Trinidad & Tobago's Prime Minister Keith Rowley accepted all the responsibility for last Wednesday's misinformation about COVID-19 vaccination, which led thousands of desperate citizens to attend hospitals.
“I want to acknowledge again that Wednesday did not go well, but we will not be throwing the towel because one day in a year and a half did not go well," said Rowley, who also stressed he was committed to fighting COVID-19 for the long haul.
In recent days, the United National Congress (UNC) opposition party criticized the government's handling of the pandemic due to the rise of COVID-19 contagions and the lack of vaccines. Opposition leader Persad-Bissessar urged for an inquiry Commission to address the situation.
Rowley confirmed the arrival of 200,000 Chinese Sinopharm on Monday.
