Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Health and Wellness Minister Dr Christopher Tufton are not scheduled to take the COVID-19 vaccine before next month unless the pace of the current roll-out significantly improves.

“It depends on how quickly we get through some of the other priority groups … . It would be April, not March, but April,” Tufton told The Gleaner on Thursday on the schedule for his and Holness’ vaccination.
