Health ministry dismisses Shaw's claim of Polio vaccine shortage
2013-10-19 18:06:29 | (0 Comments)
The health ministry is this evening dismissing claims that the country is facing a shortage of Polio vaccine.
According to the health ministry, there is no truth to claims that Jamaica is having problems with credit or payment arrangements.
The response comes over a week after Jamaica Labour Party leadership aspirant Audley Shaw told support that between August and September the country was facing a shortage of Polio vaccine.
In a statement today, director of communications at the Ministry of Health Neville Graham conceded that there was a supply problem between March and April when several damaged batches arrived in the island.
However, he says the ministry, in collaboration with long-standing partners, activated contingency arrangements which resulted in a return to normalcy by the first week of June.
