SOURCE LOOP:

Prime Minister Hon Allen Chastanet has reacted to Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua’s declaration that Antiguans may be forced by their government to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Said Browne on his weekend radio programme, “This type of hesitancy and reluctance to get vaccinated is just totally unacceptable. I mean we have been trying to avoid introducing any mandatory requirements for vaccinations, but I want to signal here, if we have to do it we will do so.”

Browne continued, “It is going to be an inescapable fact that our people have no choice but to get vaccinated, they either do so voluntarily to protect lives and livelihoods or be forced to do so.”

Prime Minister Chastanet reacted saying, “We’ve not reached that point yet. We’re still asking people on a voluntary basis to take the vaccine. We think that that’s a personal choice that people have to make.

But the reality is that once the government is satisfied that the vaccine is readily available and that we’ve promoted it and given everybody the opportunity to get the right information, we do have to open up the economy at some point.”

Chastanet pointed to The Bahamas, saying vaccinated persons no longer need to have a negative PCR test nor do they need to be quarantined when they come in.

“The reality is, is that the world is going to reopen and we would have to fully open our borders at some point,” Chastanet said, noting that we are not close to that point as yet.

“So I am encouraging all St Lucians to protect yourself, protect your family and help us recover our economy and please get vaccinated. I think there is enough information to dispel any negativity that’s been out there. I’m certainly not going to say that there’s no risk to anything, but the risk is extremely minimal and we’ve had millions of persons who’ve been vaccinated, so there is a lot of statistics available to determine the safety of the vaccines,” the prime minister said.

  1. Lol St Lucians , i guess he will let you guys know when he reached that point . Another one in the making but , this is one a little slick willy.

    WE HAVEN’T REACHED THAT POINT “YET” ? I remember a Professor once told me if you have two exact same sentences and you add ONE WORD TO CAN IT COMPLETELY CHANGES THE MEANING OR IMPLICATIONS . Here comes MR COOL trying real hard not to criticize the 🤡 .

    • Gaston Browne: “This type of hesitancy and reluctance to get vaccinated is just totally unacceptable. I mean we have been trying to avoid introducing any mandatory requirements for vaccinations, but I want to signal here, if we have to do it we will do so.”

      Has Gaston stated we have reached that point? Let me remind you Chastanet essentially echoed Gaston. SLU as of May 4th has given 24,473 first dose yet it has a population of 182,790. A&B with a populated of almost half SLU, has vaccinated *fist dose) some 30, 290 (as of the end of April 27th)

  2. Prime Minister Chastanet reacted saying, “We’ve not reached that point yet.

    That comment made me stop reading….he’s no different. Keep your eye on him…..

  3. Gaston brown u head need examining. U love money like satan love soul. Hope fire burn u down

  4. If someone is vaccinated and everyone (vaccinated and nonvaccinated) can still transmit covid, why do we quarantine at all when we land here. The way I look at it is if the virus isnt gonna show for up on a test for up to 21days then if I vaccinate, I am mostly ok, and if those around me dont vaccinate, well such is their fate if they get it from me on my twentieth day as is their fate within 2 days of my landing here.
    Get us the moderna vaccine for kids and stop the quarantine altogether or increase quarantine to three weeks and stop the testingtesting. Eitherway, we have to live or die or covid. I say let’s start living again. (NB.Variants will always be)
    Shalom.

  5. The monies these heads of State took from GAVI to have their population vaccinated will make these politicians put their country men to death. These gene therapies are not vaccines…and the real data about their lack of safety is being hidden from the public. Teenagers are now dying from heart attacks after taking the shots. Beware of the ruse!

  6. Traitor dictator tyrant Gaston and his cronies must all be removed from office. They have not represented us and our nation. They have continued to sell us all out. Only the ass kissers on here are benefiting from the scumbag Gaston.
