British High Commissioner to Jamaica Asif Ahmad has confirmed that Jamaica will be receiving the first batch of promised AstraZeneca vaccine donations at the end of July.

The unconfirmed number of expected doses is a parting gift from the British High Commissioner as he prepares to demit office.

Mr. Ahmad told Nationwide News on Tuesday that the logistics on the vaccines arrival on the island is being finalised.

He also highlighted that the vaccines form part of a contribution to the country for this part of the year and shipment will be done by the UK.

He’s being succeeded by Career diplomat, Judith Slater in September.

Meanwhile, Mr. Ahmad says Britain has not seen the need to revoke the visas of politicians deemed corrupt and is satisfied with its visa decisions for now.

According to the British High Commissioner to Jamaica, the British embassy will revoke visas solely based on facts and not innuendos.

He also highlighted that factors such as personal conduct can influence a visa revocation by Britain.
