UDP maintains no mandatory vaccination position

Posted: Monday, September 13, 2021. 9:25 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The office of the Leader of the Opposition United Democratic Party, after consultation with its Parliamentary Caucus and Standard Bearer Group, maintains that it does not support “mandatory vaccination” for Belizeans; the official statement follows a previous statement from Leader of the Opposition Shyne Barrow on Facebook in which he said: “I support the Government’s decision to require vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests to enter public buildings”.

In response to proposals to deny access to public buildings and services for those not vaccinated, the Parliamentary Caucus and group of standard bearers say that while it supports vaccination, each individual has a choice.

Those with valid reasons not to get vaccinated should be regularly tested for free and those who wish to vaccinate should get their identification card for free (the vaccine is currently free as well).

There must be a greater education campaign and a return of the National Oversight Committee with participation from the Opposition and non-government agencies, it concludes.
