GEORGETOWN, Guyana:

EXPRESSING CONCERN that regional states may not have equal access to COVID-19 vaccines, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has called for a global summit to address the matter.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, CARICOM said it was “deeply concerned at the current prospect of inequitable access to vaccines . . . especially for frontline workers and vulnerable populations”, as the world grapples with the challenge of controlling the COVID-19 pandemic.
