Health Minister, Dr Christopher Tufton, says Prime Minister Andrew Holness has signed off on the reappointment of the Special Select Committee on COVID-19.

Dr Tufton was addressing the House of Representatives yesterday.

He says the committee will manage the mass distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, once it becomes available.

The World Health Organization, WHO, says a vaccine could be approved as early as this year.

Dr Tufton says the members of the special select committee will be announced at the next sitting of the Lower House.

Dr. Tufton says the COVID-19 Special Select Committee will create a vaccine plan.
