Central still waiting for second jab

PEOPLE of Central Province are still waiting for their second jab after two months overdue.

A spokesman Michael Salini said the 2nd jab was due in early December 2021.

“Can the relevant authorities find out what is the problem and support the provincial health authority do the roll out of the vaccine as soon as possible?” Salini said.

“I am not sure how this delay will affect the effectiveness of the vaccine because as we all know, the 2nd dose should be administered two months after the 1st jab,” he added.

“Now this is four months.

“While the prime minister is calling on people to take the vaccine, the opposite is happening down there.

“Central province has become one of the hotspots outside of Honiara and Auki due to its closeness to the capital.

“So more emphasis and support should be given just like at the borders and Honiara.”
