SJB MP commends vaccination program

12 September, 2021

SJB Parliamentarian Harshana Rajakaruna said that he is happy that the vaccination program is being carried out in an expeditious manner and added that decisions should be taken to further strengthen it.

He told a media briefing at the Opposition Leader’s office on Friday that some countries had commenced a third dose of the vaccine for their people.

He called upon the Government to give a third dose of the vaccine to those above 60 years of age who had already taken the two doses of the vaccine.

He said that the country cannot be opened as the vaccination drive is carried out at a satisfactory level.

However, the Government attempted to give the impression that there is an environment conducive to open the country by showing the statistics of Covid-19 patients and deaths.

The MP said it should be disclosed to the country as to how some decisions are taken without showing the accurate figures disregarding the instructions of medical experts.

Rajakaruna said to maintain the value of the rupee, the Government has declared underwear as a non-essential item. He said that amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government attempted to remove even the people’s undergarments.
