Premier Joe Savikataaq says his social media has been cluttered with comments and questions from people wondering why he hasn’t yet received the Covid vaccine.
He replied that he intends to, when the time is right.
“The answer is simple – it just isn’t my turn yet. We are making sure our most vulnerable and our beloved Elders receive these first doses. I’m not at high-risk, I’m not immuno-compromised and despite these white hairs, I’m not an Elder,” Savikataaq said on Thursday. “The Moderna vaccine is safe. It is effective. It has been rigorously tested and administered all around the world. I encourage everyone to learn the facts about Moderna, instead of opinions and fearmongering.
“As soon as my colleagues and I are able, we will be getting this vaccine, and I will share that experience with you all,” said the premier.
