Three professors of the University of the West Indies (UWI) are urging Caribbean citizens to volunteer to take any of the COVID-19 vaccinations, saying they are all excellent products.

But monitoring of side effects by international medical specialists needs to continue and citizens should seek advice from personal doctors on any concerns they may have about being vaccinated.

Barbados is currently in the process of a massive immunisation programme involving the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine of which the country secured 100,000 doses from India for 50,000 people.

Professor of Public Health, Epidemiology and HIV/AIDS, Peter Figueroa, Professor of Molecular Genetics and Virology Dr. Christine Carrington and Professor and Pro Vice Chancellor of the UWI at Cave Hill Clive Landis on Monday threw their support behind all of the vaccines being adopted in the region.
