MEMBERS of Parliament have the duty of care to lead the vaccination roll out programe to their communities.

This was highlighted by Dr Jimmie Rodgers Secretary to the Prime Minister and member of the Oversight Committee in a Press Conference held at Mendana Hotel yesterday.

“The role of Members of parliament is to encourage and took the lead in taking vaccination roll –out programs to their communities. They have the right to assist health teams in terms of logistic support before nurses deployed and actually do vaccination on the ground,” Rodgers said.

He said these Members are the ones that will bring the communities together because they are put into parliament by their community members.

“They have the duty of care to their people to make sure they are leading the chat,” Rodgers said.

He confirmed that there are Members of parliament that are working hard behind the scene to ensure their people are vaccinated.

“I want to thank all the MP within the government and other leaders in leading the chats when it comes to vaccinations,” Rodgers said.
