    Carvin, what about them vaccines? We haven't heard any update for a long time while you were still the Minister. You did not update us on the last ones that came in and how many you had to send to the incinerator. I am glad that we won't have to hear you talking about vaccines!! What a breath of fresh air. Please, Marlon, don't pick up that vaccine agenda, you have more important work to do.
