St. Vincent and the Grenadines (News784) – On vaccine hesitancy in St Vincent and the Grenadines, Deputy Prime Minister Montgomery Daniel said the Ministry of Health would be involved in a new vaccine reintroduction campaign.
Daniel said the ministry feels there must be new outreach programs to assist in the uptake.
“They have offered to the cabinet an incentivizing programme, where a lottery can be established, and that can be done in two phases. One when the first thirty thousand persons have been vaccinated, they can benefit. Two, when the full fifty thousand persons are vaccinated, the second lottery can be drawn”.
“They are looking at where phone cards can be given to vaccinated individuals, and where services from both private and public sector entities can be offered as well.”
