West Portland Member of Parliament and former Information Minister, Daryl Vaz, says Information Minister Senator Sandrea Falconer’s attitude to media personnel at yesterday’s Jamaica House Media Briefing was disgusting.

Mr. Vaz is taking the Information Minister to task following her exchange yesterday with a TVJ Reporter at the Zik-V media briefing.

He’s also recommending that the Government activate the emergency procurement mechanism in order to properly prepare for Zik-V.

Minister Falconer intervened at the Jamaica House media briefing yesterday after Miss Smith asked Health Minister, Horace Dalley, whether he’s recommending that pregnant women should avoid Portmore St. Catherine where the first confirmed case of Zika in Jamaica was identified.
