One medical practitioner is sounding the alarm regarding hypertension numbers in Tobago.
Acting General Manager of Primary Care Services at the Tobago Regional Health Authority Dr. Roxanne Mitchell tells of a significant number of persons coming forward for vaccination at the Magdalena vaccination site presenting with high blood pressure.
She says this is a major cause of concern.
Over 14,000 persons have registered for the vaccine thus far and Dr. Mitchell notes the increase in vaccination rate since the Magdalena Grand was added as a vaccination site.
Dr. Mitchell was speaking during the weekly Tobago COVID-19 update yesterday.
