Opposition Spokesman on Health and Wellness, Dr Morais Guy is encouraging the government to immediately create and buy cialis pill implement appropriate new strategies for an accelerated take up of the AstraZeneca Covid 19 vaccine, as existing stocks of 150,000 are set to expire in less than ten days.

In a statement today, Dr Guy said mixing and matching vaccine brands is a low hanging fruit, as within the over 100,000 Jamaican adults who took the Pfizer vaccine, there are many who are overdue for second doses. 

However, he said, since the government is unable to confirm dates for Pfizer shipments, such persons should be offered the AstraZeneca. 

Dr. Guy said such a decision was timely, as the United States two days ago joined several European countries in either approving or accepting the use of mixed vaccines.
