40% of Police Officers Vaccinated

Kareem Musa

In that same vein, Minister Musa told News Five that during his trip to the northern region, he found an astounding ninety percent of police officers in Orange Walk have been vaccinated. Figures also show a jump for law enforcement country wide, with forty percent of the police department vaccinated.

 

Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs & New Growth Industries

“I am very pleased to report that in Orange Walk it is eighty to ninety percent of police officers who have gotten vaccinated. Just yesterday in Cabinet, the Minister of Health advised that we have seen a sharp increase in the number of officers that have gone in to get vaccinated. It went from twenty percent three weeks ago to now forty percent of our entire police department has at least received one shot. So that is very encouraging; the message is getting out. And so those are the type of discussions that we are having. I am hoping that the Ministry of Health has personnel here today, but they were in Orange Walk and they were in Corozal on Monday.”
