More People Need to Be Vaccinated to Lift Restrictions

Michel Chebat

Why have COVID-19 restrictions not being lifted for Belizeans who are fully vaccinated? That was a question posed by the Leader Opposition to the Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat.  He said not enough people have been vaccinated yet. 

 

Michel Chebat, Minister of Health and Wellness

“It is a valid one madam speaker, and it is one that we have been discussing time and time again. However, to start rolling out benefits in a more tangible way, we need o have more people vaccinated. Currently, we have thirty nine percent with one dose and seventeen percent fully vaccinated. This is the only way we can open up our country sir.  This is the way for us to move our country forward, mister leader. This is the only way to protect our people from this deadly virus. No pantry, no community vote, no other assistance can impact the lives of our people like the way the vaccine can. So please sir, I invite you to encourage your constituents and the constituents of those on your side to organize and come out and get vaccinated.”
