About-turn? Cabinet to now consider mandatory vaccination

Health Minister Carvin Malone getting vaccinated.

Just as the territory is expected to reopen its borders fully in the coming weeks, the government will now be considering whether mandatory vaccination should be implemented locally.

Speaking on the Virgin Islands Party’s Let’s Talk radio programme last evening (May 4), Health Minister Carvin Malone said “it is a subject Cabinet will have to explore [and] examine”.

“One needs only to look throughout the region, throughout the world and see what is happening,” Malone stated.

He was responding to a question from a member of the public who enquired whether mandatory vaccines will be given to work permit holders as is being done in some nearby jurisdictions.

Malone posited that this (countries implementing mandatory vaccine policies) might be as a result of their healthcare system “being strained”.

As for the BVI, he said: “Visitors coming in for the first time; I would suspect that Cabinet will be looking at that at its very first entrance. But we also have to look around the world — those of us who are residing here. We must protect the entire economy,” he stated.

The Health Minister said no particular group — whether nationals, expats, or visitors — is being singled out, and as such, is telling everyone 18 and over to get vaccinated now.

Previously, Premier Fahie said mandatory vaccination isn’t a route his government is willing to take.

“I am aware that member states within the region are seeking to amend their public health laws to make it mandatory for some sector of employees to be vaccinated. It is not our intention to make it mandatory. I repeat, it is not our intention to make it mandatory, but it is our intention not to have the vaccines expire while in our possession if others can do with it,” the Premier said in a statement early last month.

Premier Fahie, who was present at the forum last evening, did not offer a comment on the matter.

          Vaccine are very effective in reducing the risk of transmission. The following link is for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

          https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/science-briefs/fully-vaccinated-people.html

          To quote from their conclusions;

          “COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized in the United States have been shown to be efficacious and effective against SARS-CoV-2 infections, including asymptomatic infection, symptomatic disease, severe disease, and death. These findings, along with the potential for reduced viral load in vaccinated people who develop COVID-19, suggest that any associated transmission risk is likely to be substantially reduced in vaccinated people”

          All available science suggests that vaccine reduce the rate of transmission.

        We already have a crap nhi system that is going bankrupt and the government plans on forcing people to take a vaccine where we know nothing about the long term consequences.

        Tell you what, I will gladly take the vaccine if the entity that forces my hand promises to pay for ALL future medical bills and related expenses for me, the future kids I have after vaccination and the related future grandchildren as well as funeral costs or a one million dollar penalty if I die within 10 years after the shot.

    • Vaccinated says:

      So when you get Covid 19 and have to go the hospital why should you get treatment and use up all of the medicine and oxygen if you haven’t helped yourself? We have all been vaccinated since birth against diseases like smallpox, neasles, rubella, TB, polio and tetanus and diptheria – what’s the difference with Covid 19? if anything so much money has been ploughed into the vaccine and with technology its amazing they developed it so soon to save us all. The very small amount of people who suffered blood clots – very small – had low platelet counts so if you are worried get a platelet count test done first. If you do not get vaccinated this is going to be around for years. The plague lasted 9 years and it took a fire in London to finally kill it off. The Spanish Flu killed between 50-100 million. Its no brainer to get the vaccine. BVI needs to get to 70% for herd immunity and its nowhere near that yet. Come on people for the sake of your life and others think about taking the vaccine.

            You may be right, but anybody half sick, just a bad toe dying after the vaccine. Why? The antibodies are so strong for this COVID-19 that they are shutting down your body’s immune system to fight anything else it seems. So people who were fighting heart disease et cetera and doing well for years, they have the vaccine and boom. You hear they are dead and the family says he or she was sick for years. He had a sick heart and diabetes, not facing the fact that if you are already sick the vaccine seems to strong for you.

            That’s my take. Lots of people dying suddenly after these vaccines all over the world.

          I do not understand why people like you are refusing to accept the truth OR twisting it to make yourselves feel better about deciding to not get the vaccine. Getting the vaccine GREATLY REDUCES YOUR RISK OF CATCHING OR CARRYING THE DISEASE. So if you are vaccinated there is a miniscule possibility of you catching it and passing it on to those around you. If you remain unvaccinated there is a much higher chance of you catching it and passing it on. THERFORE – a society of vaccinated people is much safer than one of unvaccinated people – FOR EVERYONE. AND it does not just reduce your chance of dying – it REMOVES your chance of dying from covid19… those are FACTS….. It is everyone’s choice to take the vaccine or not. HOWEVER, if you are not going to do it, OWN THE REASON WHY – do not try to justify it by downplaying the massive impact that the vaccine roll out has had in the rest of the world. Do not downplay the hundreds of thousands of lives saved by the vaccine. Just say you don’t want it and move on… knowing that you are not contributing the betterment of society.

    The VIP administration can expect legal challenges to this as I certainly will NOT be taking Astrazeneca because none of those things are vaccines…they do not provide immunity…they are a drug…a drug that is still not fully tested…that does not guarantee you won’t get covid and does not guarantee you won’t pass it on…there are stifled reports of many vaccinated persons still dying from covid…but there is a hidden agenda…there are also stifled reports on the very high efficacy of drugs like ivermection on covid…so Government expect protests and expect a legal challenge and expect non-compliance!

    T&C already mandated that work permits will not be issued or renewed for unvaccinated persons, so expats will have to leave if they don’t want to take the vaccine. The BVI will no doubt follow this route if infection rates get out of hand locally. It won’t affect the people who vote – they don’t need work permits!

    This was the plan all along, but they are a bunch of liars just like any other government. This is what they all signed on to. You will have to take it anyway if you want to live because the supermarkets, ferries, taxis, and restaurants will be told not to accept you if you are not vaccinated. The thing is what I can’t understand is, why are the vaccinated persons so afraid of the unvaccinated….this means there are no benefits from being vaccinated..if the vaccine cannot do anything for you, why take it then? Democracy has gone out the door..we are now under the one-world order.No need to spell it out, we all know where this is leading, it’s just what has to happen.

Hey Malone, if you want to take it and your family, go right ahead, but you are not going to force it on me. Because BVI is small, the hoax can’t play out well here as in the big countries and youall can’t stage the movie because people here talk alot and the cat will get out the bag.

    By contrast, look at India.

    Stop reading fake news. The evidence is now there, in numbers of dead bodies.

    I completely agree, it is for you to decide if you want to take the jab. I just feel sorry for you if you think that you are worse off taking it (and your family and friends – and anyone else you care about).

    And while it remains YOUR choice not to take it. Don’t be surprised if shops, airlines, businesses don’t want your custom if you don’t immunize yourself. That’s THEIR choice (and right).

Of course people going kick the bucket if they not treating people with meds that will help them. Why everybody dying in India.

    A virus has one job, to figure out the immune system and jump to the next host to learn, you, your friend, your child it does not discriminate and learn how their immune system works, then it can mutate and overcome the immune system.

    We are so fortunate to have available the vaccine.

    We have lost a life here to Covid. She was part of our community, a life that we should all stop think and pray for.

    The way we can win this battle it is to all stand together as human beings against the virus and the pandemic. Acting quickly and together.

    Vaccinations were created by scientists from around the world, using learnings and teachings from those given knowledge passed on to them through generations of learnings and findings from our natural earth on how to fight diseases.

    We all have Faith.
    Faith is belief and trust that we rely on in so many areas of our journey. Faith in our medical doctors, and scientists. Faith that we are sefless and help our fellow man. Being selfless and helping one another is part of every relgion.

    No one will go to jail, no one will force a needle to your body … it won’t happen.

    However, what could happen and IS happening around the world:
    1) Certain jobs will require vaccinated people.
    2) There will be preferential treatment of vaccinated people.
    3) Very possible foreigners, working in the BVI will be asked to either vaccinated or leave and working visa will be taken. – easy of all.

    There are many things that can be done to increase vaccination rate without “forcing” belongers. They can still do what they want but should not expect things to stay the way they are now.

    btw: everyone should read between the lines as its coming up again and again in diffrent news stories …

    The BVI Gov is in financial crisis.

    They know the numbers and understand it better than anyone else. They know that in order to survive they must open. They will simply not tell you how bad it is as it will be admission of bad decision made during the year.

    But they do know they need to fix it and fix it fast.

    Everyone should understand this and the implication it will have on everyone (vaccinated and not).

    The future of the BVI depends on its opening. Find ways to “say yes” rather than explain “why not” with all sorts of slogans and some science you made up…

    You have no idea how bad the economic situation is ..educate yourself with real data and not one story from here and another story from there (which might be even true) but look at the totals and see the immediate and positive impact vaccination have.

    you won’t .. expect disaster to hit the BVI in the fall.

    Fake News accusations have been continual since and prior to election victory and has drawn criticism due to their repeated ridicule of the mainstream media through pejorative labels such as “fake news” and “fake media.” These labels have been deployed in an attempt to deter the public from trusting media reports, many of which are critical of the Administration and to position themselves as the only reliable source of truth. However, given the contestable nature of objective truth, it can be argued that they are a serial offender of disinformation in the same way they accuse the certain media outlets of of fake news Certain administrations operate as a real spreader of mis- and disinformation. Certain dubious characters use this type of accusations to demonstrate allegiance and as a cover for their own spreading of mis- and disinformation that is framed as truth.

So other countries will not accept these as proof so when do we get the vaccine certificate

    I cant believe how stupid some people are. If you get the vaccine and get Covid you wont die. If you dont get the vaccine and you get Covid you can die if you get it serious. Then the hosptial will have to decide who to treat – those people who didn’t the vaccine or those with other illnesses like cancer!
