Labour Minister Virginia Albert-Poyotte, who has come under fire for recent remarks regarding COVID-19 vaccination, has told reporters that she makes no apologies for encouraging people to take the jab for their good and the good of the rest of society.

At the same time, she reiterated the government’s stand on vaccine mandates.

“We have always said that the government has not reached a point where we talk about mandatory vaccines. We still look at persuasion. We have a learned community, we have people who are highly intelligent in Saint Lucia and I believe they will read and explore the science and what has been happening locally, regionally and internationally,” Albert-Poyotte asserted.

And she explained that Saint Lucia could not isolate itself from what is happening in the rest of the world.

In this regard, the Minister, who also has responsibility for the Public Service, Home Affairs, and Gender Affairs, explained that Saint Lucia could not do things independently without collaborating with the rest of the world.

Recently she told reporters that people could not just say they are not taking the COVID-19 vaccine unless for health reasons.

The Minister also told reporters that people who refuse to take the vaccine would have to remain a slave to masks, sanitisation, and social distancing for the rest of their lives.

On the other hand, she expressed that vaccinated individuals should have the freedom to move around without any masks because they are fully protected.

Albert-Poyotte said she was fully vaccinated.
