Antigua could lift mandatory vaccination requirement for incoming travellers

85

Prime Minister Gaston Browne says the mandatory vaccination requirement to enter Antigua & Barbuda could become a thing of the past.

Listen to him here:

Even after a surge in Omicron cases, the World Health Organisation has urged nations to lift travel bans and mandatory vaccination for entry into countries. “The failure of travel restrictions introduced after the detection and reporting of Omicron variant to limit the international spread of Omicron demonstrates the ineffectiveness of such measures over time. Travel measures should be based on risk assessments and avoid placing the financial burden on international travellers in accordance with Article 40 of the IHR,” it said in a statement.

It further said that the state parties should consider a risk-based approach to the “facilitation of international travel by lifting or modifying measures, such as testing and/or quarantine requirements, when appropriate.”

 

Apart from this, the committee praised South Africa for their rapid identification of the Omicron variant.

Meanwhile, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus had earlier warned global leaders that the Covid pandemic “is nowhere near over” adding that the Omicron variant is causing hospitalisations and deaths the world over.

“Make no mistake, Omicron is causing hospitalisations and deaths, and even the less severe cases are inundating health facilities,” Tedros said.

He further added, “Omicron may be less severe, on average, but the narrative that it is a mild disease is misleading, hurts the overall response and costs more lives.”

He also cautioned global leaders that “with the incredible growth of Omicron globally, new variants are likely to emerge, which is why tracking and assessment remain critical”.

  1. This idiot ad his cabinet FORCED some people to take an EXPERIMENATAL DRUG.

    This idiot and his cabinet FORCED some government workers to stay at home and loose income.

    This idiot ad his cabinet made it possible, through regulations, for some private sector employees to loose their jobs….. and now the spout this garbage about lifting the regulation that persons coming to this country do not have to be vaccinated?

    Come in election. Call the damn election date.

    You and your cabal have got to go.

    • I am an aborigines of Cualadli, and we endorse this statement fully.
      Let us bind ourselves together and demonstrate in the streets until all these IDIOTS are prosecuted for human rights violations.

      THEY MUST GO TO JAIL FOR THEIR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. The biggest idiot is Mr Harold Lovell.. ….

      • Join with your brothers and sisters around the world and protest against these globalist elites who are trying to bring us all into their GREAT RESET scheme of the NEW WORLD ORDER. These is BIGGER then red and blue. This is about GOOD verses EVIL.

        WE DEMAND OUR FREEDOMS TO BE RESTORED NOW.
        LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS is our birthright.

    • WHO never recommended that travel bans be imposed

      Since the coming into effect of the Internationl Health Regulations in 2007;WHO Never reommmened any restrictions on trade and travel. Antigua and Barbuda imposed its first travel travel bans on African countries when Enola broke out.

    • Thank you grammar police.

      I see where your priorities are.

      S.M.H. (These functionally stupid people – Grammar police is driving on his/her side of the street and a BIG BIG TRUCK is coming in the opposite direction on their side of the street and this fool is saying ‘I am on my right side and I am staying right here’.

      S.M.G.D.H. (Go figure………)

  2. The PM’s new plan is apparently to let the infection rate soar and continue to to collect his payment from the employer’s federation. Guess we are on our own now. Trouble is, more and more businesses can’t function because their staff are off sick. Unless you protect public health your precious “economy” is also going to go down the drain

    • We just have to learn to live with COVID, plain and simple! All the countries will eventually get there. Also, what sense does it make to only allow vaccinated people?

      How long did it take the Omnicron variant to reach here even though we only allowed vaccinated people? Allowing only vaccinated was NONSENSE from the start.

      Same thing with the employers have difficulty and their staff are more than likely fully vaccinated.

      • I think you should run in the next election, clearly you have more sense than who we currently have running the country.

    • You do realize that the vaccine isn’t stopping the spread. It’s about time they wise up and drop the mandates.

  3. Oh please you punch a hole in the lifeboat and when it’s sinking you blame others .
    It was wrong from the beginning and alot of people were unjustly punished .
    There’s no credit to be given for correcting what
    you should have never done..

  4. You will drive tourists away from Antigua if they think the planes and the hotels will be full of unvaccinated people. Please don’t do this. Big mistake.

    • @ Not So Common : you sound like a common fool.
      And here in the U.S. don’t have alot of unvaccinated ?
      Lol idiotry and Duncery at it’s finest Wow

    • Not so common, shut up. Antigua full of Covid-19 and the vaccinated brought it there. Don’t be a fool. You will stop me from coming to the land of my birth.

    • On the contrary, the unvaccinated are currently travelling to the other Islands and the feeling of welcome in those countries will not be forgotten. Think about the once loyal to Antigua tourists that have been pushed out only to discover other travel destinations in result of this. Hasty measures put in place by countries banning a subsection of their tourists has caused a loss of revenue while doing nothing to help their situation. If one thing is clear, it is that Covid vaccines do not stop the spread and North Americans are more than fed up with the mandates…it was a huge let down seeing Antigua push the travel mandate to start with, hopefully with this change in direction tourism can flourish there once again!

  5. I am happy that he is lifting the travel restriction of vaccine mandate. Now I can come home. Tells me election is around the corner. If we vote for him he will punish us again. Don’t fall for the same old tricks around election time. We live and we learn. Vote out the Dictator.

    • I always learn that nothing that man stay forever,and the virus is the Same,but we must be careful as well…

  6. How much money has Hospital made from Covid testing? $300 a person (more foe tourists) x how many people? Probably the first time ever hospital turn a profit

    • @Johnny…COVID-19 is the biggest #CON #GAME ever played on HUEmanity, whereby they were the #MARKS!

      #MONEY!
      #MO MONEY!
      #ONLY MONEY!

      • So all dem death was due to what mr doc. How is Covid a con? How the vaccine is a con? Who say the vaccine is a cure? How is the masking and quarantine a con? Is the WHO a con? Is the CDC a con? Looks like a lot of you bloggers cannot make up your minds.

        • 🐜🐜🐜🐜@Sleuth k…the venom from the #Ant is very healing in many ways, so much so, it has the ability to move its own weight ten folds, by itself and when the whole nest manage a project, the end result is fantastic.

          Tell me the #moral of this story, and I might entertain your questions.
          Mek sure, dat U ansah innah legible #Garratv#Stylee, cause, a me 93 year young Mummah a goh clap #Shats pan U!

  7. so will the mandatory vaccination for employment also be dropped? since so many have lost jobs and cant work due to their freedom of choice to not get vaccinated. will they then be allowed to work providing that they can do the test every 2weeks

  8. This would be a slap in the face to all of the frontline and essential workers who will be put at a highly increased risk of dealing with surges in infections. Cruise lines are placing their passengers in bubbles as it is to limit the spread on their ships. This will not improve their desires to visit our port when their own ships require vaccination to protect their passengers and staff. High-risk individuals, which includes anyone who is obese will not be quick to visit a place full of Covid. You’re pandering to a very small percentage of the world’s population with lifting this restriction at a time when other countries like the US, Canada, etc are locking down further to vaccinated only. The WHO report said to decide based on risk assessment of each country… has Antigua’s healthcare system suddenly become capable of dealing with huge surges in Covid numbers?

    I have high-risk family waiting until the current numbers drop to visit. They won’t be able to come at all if this is implemented. Please rethink this.

    • If what you said was true, how do you explain the cruise ship where EVERYONE was vaccinated and yet a lot still came down with covid?

      * Dec 19, 2021 Nearly 50 people aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship tested positive for coronavirus. Royal Caribbean said all crew members are fully vaccinated and the cruise line requires guests over 12 years to be vaccinated.

      …And this is not an isolated event. It’s happening again and again.

      The ENTIRE pandemic narrative was a lie… and only brainwashed people believe it.

      • Yes, 2% tested positive on return. And the highly contagious Omicron could have made that number much higher had they not had restrictions in place. But more than that – nobody ended up in the hospital or dead, which is the point of the vaccinations. When unvaccinated tourists come to our shores and contract Covid, is our hospital system able to take on more cases? As it is non-essential procedures are on hold. Or does maintaining a functioning healthcare system and saving lives not matter here?!

        • You are correct in your interpretation of the cruise ship outbreak. But you are wasting your time trying to reason with Angel, she is too far gone, lost in fighting imaginary conspiracies. She believes that the US election was stolen from Trump as well. Sad really.

          She does not even live in Antigua. On another thread she had asked how Antiguan’s vote (machine or paper). How can she be citizen of this country if she does not know how we vote? She cares nothing about this island. She only wants to play the role of “thought leader”. There are a small number of lost souls that post along with her, they are fools too. Just read some of her recent posts, she is unhinged.

    • As Samuel Clemens, (aka: Mark Twain) said,
      “It easier to con someone then to convince them that they have been conned”

    • You mean well. However you appear to be someone who have trusted the science so you still have to trust the science. The WHO wouldnt say this if the science didnt support it. Science has definitely been a useful tool for mankind so I support scientific inquiry and experiments. For me though, its the people interpretting the science I usually dont trust. How they design and report experiments that further their own agendas. Then attack and negate the ones that refute their claims. The problem is the lack of honesty, transparency and accountability. 2 years into the pandemic, With a vaccination rate over 50% and a growing number of people with natural immunity, its time to move to this phase.
      Why you ask???? We are at a point with the highest level of immunity and strength of antibodies….we have to let the virus run its course while we have the most people immunized. If we hold back the virus, it will keep circulating as peoples immunity wanes. Some of the vaccinations from last year are about to lose effectiveness.

      • Re: The WHO wouldn’t say this if the science didn’t support it.
        WRONG… The WHO has been talking out of both sides of their mouth for over two years now. They are in bed with Soros, Klaus Schwab, and BIG PHARMA to name a few. They ARE the headquarters for the New World Order & are puppets for Klaus Schwab’s GREAT RESET. Big Pharma is paying off scientists as well as doctors & hospitals, plus weak minded politicians to do their bidding of enslaving the world.
        YOU ARE ASLEEP IF YOU BELIEVE ANY OF THEIR BS.

  9. 1-We did not have travel band. 2- Since when we are following WHO guidelines. WHO is against booster when there are so many countries where people have not even received a single dose. Hence they believe that Covid will continue to mutate with or without booster unless there is equity. PM are you following WHO in this regard. All you are concerned is that election coming and the economy. I said it a while back we are on our own. Pm first step was to say that the Omicron will give Herd immunity. Point FM will always let him put his foot in his mouth and spill his nonsense.

  10. @Not so common
    When the experts speaks alot of people said trust the experts, (experts give opinions and is not always fact)some of us didn’t think for ourselves even when they were flip flopping. In every situation one must know how to use common sense and decipher truth from lies.

    Critical thinkers , were saying all along that the whole thing don’t make sense now everything is coming to light , and they have to go back on what people with common sense were saying, we should never allow fear to control our behaviour or our mind is we will never function effectively , it is an easy way to be manipulated.

    Vaccinated people was travelling only but the virus was still spreading. Who was spreading it the unvacinated that cannot travel on the vessels?

    • @The Analyst

      Well said 👍
      Your logic is undisputable but the brainwashed still can’t see the truth. AMAZING !

      • Probably true but really it makes little difference when it is the VACCINATED who are spreading the covid. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed that anyone, regardless of vaccination status, can spread the omicron variant of the coronavirus to other people.

        CDC: Data Shows Vaccinated People Can Spread The Delta Variant : Coronavirus Updates In an outbreak in Provincetown, Mass., three-quarters of cases occurred in fully vaccinated people.

  11. Just trying to figure out how y’all cuss this man but don’t cuss Biden?

    You MUST be vaccinated to enter the US even if you were born there, but yet still y’all hop on AA every chance y’all get, some a y’all weren’t forced by him to be vaccinated y’all got it cause it was a travel requirement all over the world.

    As a child many of us were vaccinated against many things an still got them! So wats the issue with this vaccine? Alllll vaccines are trial based drugs, you still caught and transferred chicken pox, small pox, measles, mumps and more!

    When registering a child for daycare they ask for a vaccination card and if said child isn’t fully vaccinated they can’t attend the institution so y y’all cuss everyday about this one thing?

    Covid is a form of flu they already have flu vaccines of course it would be easier to mutate the vaccine😒

    Y’all annoying now, ABLP and UPP are both garbage and I am a ABLP supporter but y’all main issue with the PM to vote him out is ridiculous there’s other harmful things he have done and a vaccine mandate makes him sooo evil?

    Antigua needs a new, young, energetic and trustworthy political party, but as soon as these types of ppl get into politics greed changes them so we will be back at square one.

    • Re: “As a child many of us were vaccinated against many things”
      These ‘vaccines’ are unlike ANY you took as a child. The mRNA shots are NEW and EXPERIMENTAL. Did you know that in the limited animal trials done, ALL of the animals died? Yet they still pushed this nonsense forward.

      The more I learn about the jab, the more I agree with the Doctors who are saying it is a depopulation effort by the global elites. THIS IS GENICIDE!

      Now I’m learning that that the contents of the vials are different from batch to batch and some batches have higher death and injuries associated with them. It now appears that groups of people are being TARGETED, for example European’s are seeing more injuries while Americans are seeing more deaths. Even STATES in the US appear to be targeted differently like RED states are getting more bad batch numbers then BLUE states. Search for the website: HOW BAD IS MY BATCH?

    • Wrong about American citizen have to be vaccinated to enter the US. Even permanent residents can enter without being vaccinated.

      You are clueless if you think these experimental gene therapy are anything like traditional vaccines. Those vaccines you mentioned took ten to fifteen years before they were brought to market and given to everyone. Meaning, the volunteers were followed for years to make sure they did get cancer, heart disease, infertility and other things before making everyone take them. Do you have any idea of the amount of people who died and have disabilities after taking these so call “vaccines.” People have every right to distrust this new experimental crap that they were/ are coerced into taking. Just because you are not hearing about all the harm it’s causing doesn’t mean harm is not occuring

    • @Reality over Calamity…
      …I’ll give you the opportunity up redeem yourself. Please begin from, “you MUST be vaccinated to enter the Country even if you were born there.”

      Research and follow these topics…

      A…Even the Supreme Court has ruled against some of ‘Sleepy Joe’ Biden’s Administration COVID-19 vaccine MANDATES.

      B…Florida’s Governor DeSantos have scrapped the COVID-19 MANDATES, since, the New World Order began this new phase of indoctrination’s and compliance’s.

      As for the other vaccines which you mentioned, how many of those require a #BOOSTER #SHOT every tgree(3) months or thereabouts to make them effective?!

      • I am an American and I just came back from the US December 4th! I was required to show proof of vaccination and a negative antigen no more than 24hrs on the VeriFLY app to do so board the flight from Antigua and also to access restaurants and the IRS building to be exact. You speak of what you “know” I’m speaking of the lord experience I’ve had.

        Both you and I are no scientist so you can’t tell me what type of vaccine it is unless you were in the lab!

        Nobody held your hand or gagged you to take it!

        They made the virus so obviously they knew the solution or best there of.

        I said what I said so take it to the Lord in prayer.

        • I just came back to the US Two weeks ago and all I had to have was a negative test to board the fight. I’m talking what I know too.

        • PS. you must be the only person in the world that doesn’t know that mRNA vaccines are not the traditional ones. mRNA vaccines are brand spanking new —
          and no one has to be a Scientists to know that.

    • I agree with you that ABLP is garbage. They have been fir a long time but to name UPP only shows you are confused.
      Show me how UPP used the resources of the state to stay in power? Show me the genuine social programs ALP instituted? Tell me when under UPP you had to check a minister for anything? I could go on and on but I believe my points are made. Dont make the same mistakes again

  12. Mr Harold Lovell must not be apart of the next election, he did not stand with the people he joined with the government and promoted their agenda “Take your vaccine”
    Harold Lovell must go and make way for MS MESSIAH to be the leader of the opposition, Ms MESSIAH stood with the people her leadership must be remembered.

    • Are you mad??? I just listened to the public announcement by Lovell asking people to take the vacine. By the way although done by ministry of health, it never aired on ABS TV.
      Are you being paid to, ‘narsey up’ Lovell’s name?? If so, they should fire you because your constant garbage is outdated.

  13. Really, where do I begin on this one. Firstly, my disclaimer, I am 64years old, slightly overweight, and pre-diabetic. Of course I am fully vaccinated and boosted. My reasons, I believe in the protection from severe illness that being vaccinated is supposed to give me. I can say, that as of 1.30am Sunday morning I am Covid-free having visited the Emergency room at the Hospital for a spike in my blood sugar.
    Having gotten that out of the way, I do not agree with the relaxation of proof of vaccination. I can hear the point that the numbers are sometimes spiking upwards and if entry into the island has to be accompanied by a vaccination card then where are the new cases coming from. Remember there are also tests that have to be done three days prior to travel, I think. Well, vaccination is not a deterrent to infection. It, like a very healthy immune system, allows our bodies to fight off the illness. Does that mean that we should not care if someone brings it onto the island? Of course not. We should care.
    This stance changing causes confusion in people’s minds. I do not go anywhere unless I am triple masked. Not even on my verandah. Am I paranoid? Maybe. But I rather be paranoid than on a ventilator or, God forbid, dead.
    I want to see the politicisation of this pandemic stopped and Instead see meaningful dialogue taking place. I don’t have to sway you to my line of thinking – I just have to protect myself the best way I see how.

    • I’m of the same mindset, Joan. I would love to see meaningful dialogue instead of people reverting to immediately assuming different opinions are based on being brainwashed, an inability to think critically, or being a “sheep”. All the while spouting conspiracy theories about global depopulation… It so disheartening to see such a huge divide in positions on something that should be so easy for people to agree on, namely, basic steps to make things safer for all during a pandemic.

      I hate that this has been politicized.

      • @Anugirl
        By “meaningful dialog” are you just really just saying that you want people to agree with your position? Of course people who disagree with you are going to accuse you of being “brainwashed, an inability to think critically, or being a “sheep”.” when you spout the global elite’s line without researching the data. If you had spent time doing the research you would have come to the same conclusion that the so called “conspiracy theorists” have concluded to be truth. What’s that saying… “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make her think”. Especially when she smugly believes she is correct and everyone else is wrong. If you truly believe you are right… CONVINCE US WITH FACTUAL DATA (scientific peer reviewed is even better).

      • @Anugirl
        Have you seen the microscope images of what’s in the ‘vaccines’? There are microscopic ‘hydra’ like synthetic ‘organisms’, that move around. There is Graphene structures that look like nano-sized circuits. There are graphene razor blades one atom thick. There are metals and other contaminants that have no business being in ANY VACCINE. So, Have you looked into ANY of this?

        Regarding the issue of depopulation… Search the phrase depopulation proof (Not Google) and you’ll find a lot of material that should convince you of the World Economic Forums and their global elite’s intentions to de-populate the planet.

        #2) Microsoft’s Bill Gates….
        “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

        #3) Barack Obama’s top science advisor, John P. Holdren….
        “A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men. The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

        #16) Thomas Ferguson, former official in the U.S. State Department Office of Population Affairs….
        “There is a single theme behind all our work–we must reduce population levels. Either governments do it our way, through nice clean methods, or they will get the kinds of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran or in Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control, it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it….”

        #17) Mikhail Gorbachev….
        “We must speak more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.”

        #18) John Guillebaud, professor of family planning at University College London….

That’s the largest allocation in more than a decade – since we last had a Democratic president, I might add.”

        • @ Angel, kudos to you for having the patience to try and educate the ignorant. But the time for education is almost over –because the evil doers are years ahead in their planning on what they have in store for the plebs. I feel sorry for SOME that are still asleep. However, the clock is ticking so you gotta keep on moving along.

            Ephesians 4: Instructions for Christian Living

            17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.

            20 That, however, is not the way of life you learned 21 when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

            25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 “In your anger do not sin”[d]: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

            29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

      • Anugirl, the divide is not as great as it may seem. The vast majority of people on our island think like you, so do not despair. Angel and a small handful of other misfits post incessantly, often as a gang. They are bullies. They are intellectually dishonest. If they were to be confronted on the street they would cower and run away.

        I have observed over and over again that she, and others, will belittle and attack anyone who dares to challenge their rantings. Her idea of research is absurd, limited to misinformation found through her social media
        sources. The gene pool generating misinformation is shallow. One report concluded that the vast majority of covid misinformation was generated by only 12 people, but was followed by 59 million people across multiple social media platforms.

        Do not think for a moment that they represent anything more than a very small sliver of our society. They will believe anything that is tainted with the moniker “conspiracy”. They take joy in confrontation and love the limelight that controversy shines on them. That is their motivation, to be seen, to be heard. Just read the nonsense list posted above by Angel. Quotes that have been taken out of context, over a along period of time, unlinked in any way to the pandemic. It’s a common misinformation tactic. Unfortunately, social media has given these people a pulpit to spew their nonsense, allowing them to look more influential than they really are. Her rantings about “hydra like synthetic organisms” and “graphene razor blades” is the voice of lunatic.

        I expect a her usual response, along with the rest of her gang, when I post this note, which is fine by me. But rest assured Anu, you are far from being alone.

        • @Keep It Real
          Have YOU actually taken ANY time to search “hydra like synthetic organisms” ?
          Dr. Franc Zalewski: has seen living, Tentacled Things Found In Pfizer Vax. Dr. Zalewski found three of them in three separate Pfizer samples. Could this be the same anomaly Dr. Madej found? Remember that she found a creature with tentacles that speculators likened to Hydra Vulgaris. And she isolated her sample right away, using only a high-powered microscope, while it looks like Zalewsky had a larger sample to work with and better research tools.

          You say we are posting misinformation and just want attention. WRONG.
          You’ve spent a lot of time making YOUR post and it provides ZERO PROOF of anything you’ve speculated. Maybe YOUR the one doing what you are accusing us of… uh?

          • Dear God you are completely off the rails… “tentacled things” “creature with tentacles”. You must be mad to believe such balderdash. And no I don’t remember that she found a tentacled creature. My God you make me laugh my dear.

            Here is a summary of a review of Madej and Zalewski’s claims.

            “Health Feedback reached out to Madej and Zalewski requesting evidence for their findings. We didn’t hear back from Madej. Zalewski responded by stating that he needed access to a laboratory and that he thought this might be an alien life form, although he provided no evidence for his claim.”

            The entire review can be found by clicking this link. By the way, Zalewski is a geologist and Madej is an osteopath who no longer practices.

    I’m not saying to ANYONE…don’t get vaccinated. You are free to do that if you want. Nobody is telling YOU that you can’t be quadrupled vaccinated and boosted if that’s your thing! Just don’t tell us that we need to do it too. Are you really trying to claim that YOUR vaccine only works if I take one also??? That is illogical.

    What we are against is MANDATED VACCINE PASSPORTS, FORCED INJECTIONS AND COERCION TO COMPLY with totalitarian dictates. We object to mandates to wear masks or get vaccinated before we call participate in society. We don’t want to be bullied to do things that we don’t want to do and don’t tell me that it is about THE COMMON GOOD. What about the INDIVIDUAL’S GOOD? Don’t we individual members of society count anymore? Have we descended into completely not questioning the GROUP THINK mentality? If so, THEN THIS TOWN ISN’T BIG ENOUGH FOR THE TWO OF US.

  15. On the attack again Angel? First you tell Joan she’s free to do what she wants, then you belittle her in the next sentence. IS YOUR KEYBOARD BROKEN OR IS YELLING JUST PART OF YOUR BRAND?!?!? But when your right you are right. This island isn’t big enough for you, you don’t live here anyway, so stay away and start taking your meds.

  16. Thank the Lord! At long last I can get back home to look after elderly father and see my relatives. AFAIK Antigua was the only country that barred their own nationals returning home while welcoming foreign tourists with open arms.

    I’ll never forgive the ignorant, corrupt, greedy, slave mentality politicians in government for imposing this hardship on my kin.

  17. @ Angel .
    Damn you post way too much .
    Evey other comment is Angel Angel Angel Angel.
    And no, I don’t disagree with what you’re saying it’s just the frequency so don’t go there.
    Make your case and let it stand .
    To respond everytime someone disagrees
    your point becomes irrelevant.

  18. Now all could be coming into Antigua without being Vaccinated. They are opening up the Country because the WHO is saying they should. In my opinion,it is a very troubling idea. You would be having many persons in Antigua getting sick from the Virus.Those who are Vaccinated and not Vaccinated would be getting sick.Are they putting MONEY over the life and health of the people?

  19. I think it’s terrible that Antiguan nationals are denied entry into their own country for such a long time. There is absolutely no justification for it! I can understand denying non-nationals entry, but why are Antiguans being locked out of their own country? Very disgraceful.
