Various groups including lawyers are now seen expressing viewpoints about COVID vaccines, misleading the general public, State Minister Dr. Sudarshini Fernandopulle said.  

"I cannot express opinions on something related to law as I am not from that field. I am qualified only in the field of medicines," she told reporters.  

"Therefore, those who have zero knowledge on vaccines and medicines should abstain from speaking about them, as it could paint a wrong picture about vaccines and thereby discourage people to get their relevant dose," she emphasised.  

In a situation where a number of COVID cases is on the rise, Dr. Fernandopulle said that the people should make sure they get the all-important vaccines in due time. 

"At least 63% of total population has been offered with both the doses. However, what's worrying is that only 23% has received the booster dose," she pointed out.  

Thus, Dr. Fernandopulle requested people to get the booster dose without getting carried away and deceived by myths and misconceptions. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Madam, you have no right to talk of vaccine. At the onset of the pandemic in Sri Lanka the opposition asked you for the plans for importing vaccine. What was your response, "Sri Lanka will get vaccine for 20% of the population under the WHO's COVAX free of charge". How many doses did Sri Lanka get under the COVAX program?

    Dr, people don't trust leadership or the government. It's not the lawyers.

    Reza Dole Sunday, 23 January 2022 07:29 PM

    Spot on. Mr Sam. Absolutely correct. Nobody trust the government anymore.

    Don't be fooled by all this vaccine mafia .. How many millions are made out this ? Today pharmaceutics are big business . Where ethics and morality in this production. We respect medicine and medical professionals but not Mafia . In India kidneys are taken out by force for business and yet we have not decended to this level . But vaccine culture may be starting point for this .

    Lifeless Sunday, 23 January 2022 07:46 PM

    Dr. People are so frustrated and are not keen to go for the vaccine as one cannot exist with the vaccine alone. People are suffering a lot and they are unable to provide a living for their family. The way things are happening in this country People prefer to die because the hardships they are facing in their day to day life.

    Fools taking everything political.

    Godayata Magic Sunday, 23 January 2022 08:25 PM

    Forcing someone to get some medicine is against human rights. What's wrong in lawyers questioning this. It's you guys who are crossing the limit.

    Patriot Sunday, 23 January 2022 08:47 PM

    Why not import Astra Zeneca as third dose for those who already had two doses of this?

    kumar Sunday, 23 January 2022 09:15 PM

    You have to first obtain information and share and analyse them scientifically instead of ignorantly justifying political actions. Many an opinion of medical personnel have been proved wrong.Therefore although there is some validity in her statement, but should not be taken as the whole truth in the absence of reliable appropriate information,

    A military man heading the government, a non qualified holding the most important position of finance minister and some of qualified people like you working under them. So what's wrong with lawyer's views in an important issues?

    Citizen k Sunday, 23 January 2022 10:34 PM

    People are busy queuing up for essentials and vaccines are their last priority.

    Karalasingam Sivalingam Sunday, 23 January 2022 10:45 PM

    A Cardiologist's spouse in UK declared that 90% of the Cardiological patients were fully vaccinated and responsible for spreading the virus. Doctors keep mum for reasons not known. Madam Doctor, can u comment on this please.

    Ganesh Monday, 24 January 2022 12:11 AM

    Firstly getting vaccinated was made a nightmare. The process was totally screwed. Now you are begging people to get vaccinated. How the cookie has crumbled. No one trusts this government period except for some die hards.

    Freddy Foxx Monday, 24 January 2022 02:10 PM

    Respected Doctor, it just a case of 'fools' walking in where angels fear to thread. Let these stupid lawyers continue to stand at the entrances of judicial courts and tout minor offenders caught in the police net for a few bucks and not interfere with the medical profession.

    Vernon Tuesday, 25 January 2022 12:38 PM

    Lawyers have been the bane of our country. They draft the laws making them complicated, and get the fools in the parliament to pass such laws. Then they argue in courts about the applicability of the same laws they have drafted, to creep through or to convict.
