(Antigua Observer) Antigua and Barbuda will add another Covid-19 vaccine to it inventory as the country is expected to receive an undisclosed sum of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
Since early last month, the twin island nation was confirmed to be one of several Caribbean countries that will receive a gift of vaccines from the United States.
At the time, there was no confirmation on whether the country would be gifted with the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines, but Health Minister Sir Molwyn Joseph revealed Wednesday that the country will be receiving the German manufactured vaccine.
“Well, it appears we are going to get Pfizer and as you know it’s coming through the Caricom mechanism. The prime minister is now Chairman of Caricom so he will be working hard to speed up the process so we are hoping that the Pfizer that is being promised will arrive here in Antigua very soon,” Sir Molwyn explained.
