By Aaron Humes: Belize’s remotest village, Graham Creek in the Toledo District, was paid a visit by officials of the Ministry of Health seeking to vaccinate the village’s population of approximately 100 people against COVID-19.
But according to Wil Maheia’s PGTV, after a two-hour journey by boat and foot, the villagers showed little enthusiasm and just four of them, including two health workers, took the jab.
Transportation was provided by the Coast Guard at cost of $2,000.
The entire district of Toledo has reported just 700 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, most of them in Punta Gorda Town.
PGTV observed, “We are not sure if religion have anything to do with their decision but we did note that the village has approximately 15 houses and several churches.”
