MoH not party to giving Pfizer jab to Hambantota

Media Spokesman for the Health Ministry Consultant Physician Dr. Hemantha Herath stated that if the justification for giving the Pfizer vaccine to youth in Hambantota was that it was located near a Harbour, then the same rationale exists for giving youth in Colombo the Pfizer vaccine, as Colombo too has a Harbour.

He was answering a question posed by a journalist during a press conference at the Health Promotion Bureau, regarding a statement made by State Pharmaceutical Corporation Chairman Consultant Physician Dr. Prasanna Gunasena.

He added that Dr. Gunasena can make those statements as he was probably present at meetings where the decision to do so was taken, pointing out that no Health Ministry official including himself was present at those meetings.
