Abrahams: No twisting arms
Government last night refuted suggestions that it was trying to force people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
This was stressed by Acting Attorney General Wilfred Abrahams at Alexandra School in St Peter during the first in a series of town hall meetings on COVID-19 vaccines and testing.
Responding to a question posed by an online participant who asked how the final decision will be made on whether the vaccines will become mandatory, Abrahams said: “Government does not have a policy position as it stands now in respect of mandatory vaccination of anybody.”
He added that people’s rights had to be respected and preserved. (GBM)
