The current vaccination strategy is flawed and is in need of urgent review, with priority given for the elderly patients,the Sri Lanka Medical Association said.

Sri Lanka’s premier professional medical body in a letter to the President said that there was no apparent benefit of vaccinating disease hot-spots with high mobility of people.

“In such a circumstance, particularly troubled by continuous short supply of vaccines, we emphasize the need for an efficient vaccine strategy which targets high-risk groups,” the premier professional medical organisation headed by Dr. Padma Gunaratne said.

“This will effectively achieve maximum control and avoid the necessity for repeated lock-downs,” they further said.(KALANI KUMARASINGHE)

    This should be the only country where trade unions instruct the president via letters. All they want is media attention.

    Lal Friday, 04 June 2021 09:33 AM

    This is the policy all other countries implemented.

    Professional organizations have a duty to force WHO to act on covax pledge.

    We don't understand what's really happening with your vaccination procedures. We always get conflicting statements from you all. Only the GOD can save us from this mess.

    Why can't the vaccinate area wise with the help of Gramasevaka of each area.

    Everything about SL is flawed. Current situation in not something which happened overnight. Greedy dirty politicians have pushed SL to the edge and all that we're doing is complaining without doing something about it. Wake up people
