President Paula-Mae Weekes will address the nation at 2 pm today after a widely circulated post by a New York hospital suggested she received a Pfizer dose. President Weekes reportedly returned to the country today to the firestorm of social media messages. The Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn tweeted, deleted, then updated a tweet welcoming President Paula-Mae Weekes to its facility today for her vaccination.
An updated post later clarified that she came for a PCR test. Social media stirred with questions about why the Head of State, who has already been fully vaccinated in T&T, felt the need for a third shot. The President had since called a press conference at 2 PM today to address and further clarify the issue.
