By BBN Staff: Dr. Fernando Cuellar, Internist at the Belize Medical Associates and a leading figure and spokesperson in the medical field in Belize, says that he fully supports Government’s move to implement stricter regulations to enter public spaces in order to encourage vaccinations.
In an interview with Courtney Menzies from Channel 7, Dr. Cuellar did not mince words. “I categorically support…that we should have stricter regulations for people to become vaccinated”. Dr. Cuellar explained that after months of talking and talking and explaining he cannot understand why people cannot accept that vaccination “is a tool in the tool box that will get us out of this COVID pandemia”. He reiterated that vaccination is not the only thing that will save lives and that it is to be used along with wearing of masks, washing of hands and physical distancing.
Dr. Cuellar went on to tell Channel 7’s Courtney Menzies that the implementation of stricter measures also has overwhelming support from his medical colleagues based on what he has seen in the medical chat groups that he is a part of. He explained, however, that this is not “an official pronouncement” that he is making.
Dr. Cuellar recently caught COVID-19 despite being vaccinated and was hospitalized for a short while; he credits the vaccine for not getting critically ill and saving his life. He said that having caught COVID-19 has allowed him to do a bit more reading on the legalities so he is an advocate for mandatory vaccination. He reiterated that he is tired of all the excuses residents give for not getting vaccinated and that his medical colleagues, especially in the public hospitals, are tired of working 25 hours a day.
