MOHW Experts Say Vaccines are Global Response to Dangerous Disease not Experiments

Natalia Largaespada Beer

Experts at the Ministry of Health have responded to the anti-vaxxers claims today, contending that the sheer volume of vaccines administered—over three point three billion doses worldwide—should speak for itself.  They say COVID vaccines in Belize are part of a global response and no one is experimenting on Belizeans.


Dr. Natalia Largaespada Beer, Maternal & Child Health Technical Advisor, M.O.H.W.

“So far, worldwide, three point three billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered. And, unfortunately the countries that are having greater access to the vaccines are countries that are wealthy, and they are paying whatever cost the vaccine are sold to them. So, they are hoarding the vaccine. And, poor countries like ours, we are struggling to secure the little amount of vaccines that we need to cover our population. So, I think we use data and the data is clear. Three point three billion doses administered. I think we must give thanks to those persons who accepted the vaccine at the initial phases, because we owe it to them. And, they were the one who were at greater risk with the vaccine. And currently, I mean three point three billion speaks by itself.”

“Tell people to vaccinate, because we don’t want the variants to reach the variants of high consequence. We don’t want to pay those consequences. Belize is not being used as guinea pigs as they say, because we are not being singled out. This is a worldwide response. Everybody is vaccinating. We are using the vaccine from UK. So, UK is using that vaccine, the AstraZeneca. So, we should be happy to use the vaccine.”
