Vaccination picking up; Belize now second in Caribbean for fully vaccinated status

Posted: Thursday, October 21, 2021. 9:10 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Despite what many perceive to be a slow start and a lagging pace, Belize is warming to the task of vaccinating the majority of residents against COVID-19.

According to Cabinet’s weekly report, Belize now ranks second among the Caribbean states in the percentage of the population fully vaccinated.

As of Monday, October 18, 165,542 Belizeans or 37.4 percent had been fully vaccinated; 203,819 persons or 47.37 percent of the total population had received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Focus is turning to up the number of fully vaccinated persons and Belize is well stocked with vaccine doses: 29,508 doses of Pfizer vaccine; 90,800 of AstraZeneca vaccine; and 114,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson.

But Belize is not out of the woods yet with active cases closer to 3 thousand than two and deaths still occurring, even in fully vaccinated persons. Consequently, Cabinet strongly urges the public to wear masks, maintain physical distance, wash hands regularly, and for those not fully vaccinated to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccinations save lives.
