spot_img

COVID-19 and Influenza Vaccines are available at the community wellness centres in Saint Lucia.

According to Deputy Immunisation Manager Bernadette Felix-Regis, the COVID-19 and Influenza Vaccines can be administered simultaneously.

She disclosed that the Ministry of Health had noted increased respiratory infections over the last four weeks.

Felix-Regis also revealed that Saint Lucia continues to record confirmed COVID-19 cases.

As a result, the Ministry of Health has encouraged unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals to take the COVID-19 vaccine at the nearest Wellness Centre.

In addition, Felix-Regis explained the importance of people, especially among the vulnerable population and older people, getting vaccinated against the flu virus.

Her complete statement appears below:

  1. Please tell us how many cases. Where are the statistics to support “increased respiratory infections over the last four weeks”?

    Will the Honourable Minister for Health and the Chief Medical Officer say something? Who is accountable here?

  2. So many are dying from the vaccine my elder cousin 79 is back having periods ? Many people die from strange bed sores ? Someone I know close to me 54 and back on periods ? Come on ill die with the flu instead

  3. No one should take these injections. The world over is acknowledging that the Covid-19 injections did not work, rather, they poisoned our system which apparently was the intention in the first place. Why then is our ministry of health still encouraging us to take them? Is it because they know that they cannot be sued. The flu shot is no different – has never prevented flu in any one. We cannot trust that our governments and the WHO will act in our best interest. In fact they have betrayed our trust and was only concerned about big pharma’s profits. So I will say what the authorities should be advising “ DO NOT TAKE THE COVID-19 VACCINES, FOR IT MIGHT KILL YOU “ through strokes, myocarditis, blood clots, paralysis etc.

  4. that is just another tactic to make us scared so they can try to control us. If you afraid of someone they will always control you. Although there still are cases of the covid but mentioning it again trust me will get people afraid.

  5. Not that BS again. Thank God many people in this country were wise enough to see through it first time around.

  6. It’s called flu season. If you’re a medical profession and can’t understand that flu is cyclical (increases in cooler months, wanes in hotter months) then you’re and idiot that should burn up their certification. This fear mongering won’t work again.

  7. @No vaxxines for me: What is obvious from the data you provided is that Eastern European i.e. former Soviet Bloc countries fared e better despite being poorer. Those citizens are less likely to trust their governments due to the Soviet legacy. So clearly there is a direct link: if you don’t trust your government you will do better in the “pandemic”.
