Pres­i­dent of the TTMA, Tri­cia Coos­al stat­ed, “We are thrilled that the Min­istry of Health and the Min­istry of Trade & In­dus­try has con­tin­ued to part­ner with the TTMA in vac­ci­na­tion dri­ves for the busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty. TTMA is al­so pleased to have ex­tend­ed to­day’s sec­ond dose vac­ci­na­tion dri­ve to all mem­bers of the pub­lic who were vac­ci­nat­ed at the Di­vali Na­gar site be­fore 27th June 2021. This is to en­sure the pub­lic re­ceives their sec­ond dose of the Sinopharm vac­cine in a time­ly man­ner. We thank the Min­istry of Health and Min­istry of Trade & In­dus­try for the con­fi­dence placed in TTMA to give us the first op­por­tu­ni­ty in June to be the first pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tion un­der pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship to ex­e­cute large vac­ci­na­tion sites.”

Tri­cia Coos­al al­so stat­ed, “As the role mod­el for oth­er or­gan­i­sa­tions in ‘Vac­ci­nate to Op­er­ate’ TTMA con­tin­ues to lead the way for the ex­e­cu­tion of oth­er or­gan­i­sa­tions’ vac­ci­na­tion sites. The vac­ci­na­tion site tem­plate de­vel­oped and ex­e­cut­ed by the TTMA served as a spring­board for oth­er or­gan­i­sa­tions’ ex­e­cu­tions and TTMA stands ready to share with oth­er or­gan­i­sa­tions the learn­ings gleaned from our 7 vac­ci­na­tion sites ex­e­cu­tion of both 1st and 2nd dos­es.

To­day, TTMA suc­cess­ful­ly ad­min­is­tered 5,200 2nd dos­es of Sinopharm to­day at the Di­vali Na­gar Site. This brings our to­tal vac­cines ad­min­is­tered (both 1st and 2nd dos­es) to a to­tal of 22,000 ap­prox­i­mate­ly. We will con­tin­ue to ho­n­our our com­mit­ment to the con­tri­bu­tion of a safe op­er­at­ing busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty in the ex­e­cu­tion of fur­ther mass vac­ci­na­tion sites for 1st dose Sinopharm.”

Coos­al ex­pressed her tremen­dous grat­i­tude to all vol­un­teers who con­tin­ue to sup­port self­less­ly TTMA’s vac­ci­na­tion dri­ves, “This achieve­ment of ad­min­is­tra­tion of over 20,000 vac­cines would not have been pos­si­ble with­out our part­ners, the T&T Med­ical As­so­ci­a­tion, SE­WA TT In­ter­na­tion­al and the Na­tion­al Coun­cil for In­di­an Cul­ture (NCIC).
