Grenada official concerned as fewer people getting vaccinated

A senior government official in Grenada on Tuesday expressed concern at the decline in the number of people getting vaccinated against the coronavirus.
 
The reduction coincided with a fall in the number of positive cases, hospitalisation and deaths linked to the pandemic.
 
Hannah Julien-St. Paul, Acting Permanent Secretary with responsibility for Hospital Services and Health Services, said over the last three weeks, there has been a decline in the number of people receiving the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
 
Speaking at the weekly post Cabinet press conference, she told reporters the situation is cause for concern.
 
Miss Julien-St. Paul urged Grenadians not to lower their guard because of the reduced positivity rate and restrictions as the virus is still circulating.
 
Grenada has recorded more than 5,000 coronavirus cases as well as 182 deaths since the outbreak of the pandemic.
