Peter Figueroa said ( about British ) : “The FDA is one regulatory agency. It's considered a stringent regulatory agency in the sense that it is supposed to have high standards. The Brits also have a stringent regulatory agency. There are only a handful of stringent regulatory agencies and the World Health Organization would accept the assessment by any of the stringent regulatory agencies concerning any of the vaccines. AstraZeneca has not been reviewed by the FDA but it has been reviewed by the British regulatory agency as well as the European regulatory agency, both of which are equally stringent,” External link

Peter Figueroa explained : “What happens sometimes is that, towards the end of the day, you have vaccinated six persons, and you come to the end of the day and you have a vial that still has four doses in it. Usually, what you have to do is try and find four persons to vaccinate that same day. Otherwise, you lose those four doses because you cannot put it back into the fridge or keep it for the next day,” External link

Peter Figueroa said : “Nurses are the backbone of the health service and the system would collapse without our nurses. Given the challenges of COVID-19 and the shortages of nurses and equipment, and the heavy workload, there are times when all of us do slip, where we get tired and weary and not at our best. This is why teamwork is so critical and we must be supportive of each other,” External link

Peter Figueroa pointed out : “It is not easy to identify and mobilise those targeted for vaccines, and for some of the vaccines there are issues of storage, cold chain, logistics, so it is a lot of planning and work that needs to be done to ensure that when the vaccine does come it is delivered efficiently and you can see that countries like the great United States cannot roll out their vaccine efficiently. They have not planned for it adequately and they don't have the public health infrastructure that usually does this and thy have also had a lot of challenges with their leadership as we all know,” External link

Peter Figueroa added : “Until we have sufficient vaccines to get at least 60 per cent or more of our adult population vaccinated we will not have what they call herd immunity protection. So we have to prepare. We are going to have to be patient this year and support each other to continue the protocols that are being promoted,” External link

Peter Figueroa said ( about National Health ) : “I know that we were supposed to be sending samples of our virus abroad through the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to look at it because they want to track the virus everywhere to see if there is another variant,” External link

Peter Figueroa argued : “At this stage it is very important that we have leaders of government and other leaders as well as doctors and nurses willing to step forward and take the vaccine first in any given country,” External link

jamaicaobserver Sunday, December 20, 2020 8:45:00 AM EAT

Peter Figueroa said : “The vaccines are not a silver bullet, we still need the non-pharmaceutical measures, the mask and the hand hygiene, the physical distancing and avoiding crowds, especially indoors,” External link

Peter Figueroa said : “When can we expect some vaccines? Low and middle-income countries are unlikely to get vaccines before March or April and it will be very little initially. We will get a bit more in the middle of the year and then we will get some more towards the end of the year,” External link

cnc3 Saturday, December 19, 2020 10:36:00 AM EAT

Peter Figueroa pointed out : “The reality is that a significant amount of the early vaccine is going to go to high-income countries. In addition, the cold chain requirements are such that, especially the BioNtech vaccine, it really needs a -70 degrees freezer to store it, so that even if you made arrangements to deliver it to major cities in developing countries, it could not be used extensively. But there is a benefit to all of us if many thousands of persons are vaccinated in developed countries, it means that it is easier for us to receive the tourists coming from North America, if the majority are vaccinated,” “So I am not upset about the fact that there may be a little more distribution, initially, in high-income countries, provided that the COVAX facility works effectively and gets it on an equitable basis to the low- and middle-income countries rapidly,” External link

Peter Figueroa explained : “Take the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine, up until now you have the vaccine in a vial, but you may have to take normal saline separately in order to dilute the vaccine. So that introduces another element, whereas with the Moderna [the other approved vaccine], everything is in one vial. So you also have to think [about] whether you have to mix or not, you may have to keep everything at the same temperature. Once you open the vaccine you may have to discard it within six hours. Each country has to think about which vaccine best suits its conditions,” External link

Peter Figueroa said : “We are going to have to live with COVID[-19] for the foreseeable future, and certainly through 2021. The vaccines are not a silver bullet, we still need to have in place non-pharmaceutical measures...saliva tests are already available in the United States and we hope they become more widely available. We need to train dogs to smell persons with COVID[-19], this is already being done elsewhere,” External link

jamaicaobserver Thursday, December 10, 2020 9:20:00 AM EAT

Peter Figueroa said : “Once it is approached properly, I’m optimistic, that most Jamaicans, if given the opportunity, would take it, but initially, the supply of vaccine will not be there. There will not be enough just to offer the vaccine to every and all Jamaicans,” External link

Peter Figueroa warned : “Since we are going into a national election, it is easy to become distracted by the elections alone, but we cannot afford to be totally distracted by the elections, we have to ensure that the essential services function,” External link
