Jamaica's Health Ministry Unresponsive to Requests About Post-Vaccination Deaths. Plus, Covid-19 Cases Hit Daily Records.
Against the backdrop of daily records for new Covid-19 cases in Jamaica, the country’s Ministry of Health and Wellness remains unresponsive to requests for data on post-vaccination deaths.
The latest request for the information was made at a virtual press conference on Jan. 6 at which the head of the country’s vaccination program, Dr. Melody Ennis, was said to be present. However, when 18º North asked for an update on post-vaccination deaths and a breakdown of serious adverse reactions by age, an announcement was made that she had already left the longer-than-usual press conference.
