Vaccination programme impacted as Health TUs go on strike

Health services including the vaccination process was seriously impacted after 26 Health Trade Unions stepped back from their duties as a Trade Union action.
They have been making several demands including receiving allowances.
However, the move had seriously inconvenienced the public who had sought medical services as well as those who were to receive their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination today.
Residents who had lined up in front of the Biyagama MoH had lamented that they had not even been told beforehand that the vaccine would not be given today.
According to reports, vaccination processes at several vaccination centres in Colombo suburbs have been severely affected due to this move.
