“The vaccine is safe… get vaccinated” Holness states to the Nation while live-streaming his most recent speech at a Townhall done hours ago. According to Andrew Holness getting vaccinated is important for personal health and the public at large. He explained that if Jamaica reaches a herd immunity level of vaccination we will be able to go back to our normal lives, which includes opening the economy, churches and the keeping of parties.
Holness points out that people with influence in our society are misleading many people as to what is really going on, he says they are posing a problem by spreading misinformation.
Just recently, veteran reggae artiste, Buju Banton ranted about the distrust the people have for the Government due to them doing things underhandedly. Spragga Benz, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and others joined the charge with the “Gargamel”, by adding their thoughts on the provoking issue.
Holness and Co. argue that the World Health Organization(WHO) outlines that the vaccine is safe despite blood cloth reports in parts of Europe, “people developing cloths happens all the time” a professor stated before saying that in fact there as been few cases of cloths when compared to past. It’s reported by WHO that one in one million people who takes the vaccine may develop a blood clot.
One person commented “Andrew and his crew ,can’t be trusted, y they don’t take it. paying 10 thousands to take it tell me something is wrong, no no for me” while another said “Andrew Holness is behaving like a dictator. Him better watch himself because he is human not superman”.
