h1n1 2Those who are not on the list of people who need to get the H1N1 vaccine have been asked not to seek to get one.

This advice came from the Minister of Health, Terrence Deyalsingh.

There have been concerns of diminishing levels of the vaccine recently.

One senior official of the Pharmacy Board of Trinidad and Tobago revealed that the board received several complaints from persons who claimed they experienced problems getting the vaccine.

In a recent News Power Now interview he explained that some members of the public had complained of being turned away from medical due to what was been described as the unavailability of the swine flu vaccine.

However the Health Minister has dispelled rumors that the country had no vaccine at all.

In fact the Health Ministry has assured citizens that there is no need to panic as hospitals across the country would be well equipped to deal with the current outbreak.


The St. Joseph Member of Parliament outlined who is able to access the vaccine and who is at risk.
