Pierre Says Low Vaccine Coverage Hampering Progress

Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has again pleaded with the people of Saint Lucia to get vaccinated against COVID-19, asserting that the Island’s low vaccine coverage of less than 30 percent of the population is hampering progress.

“I am very, very concerned about it. I was one of the first people who spoke about following the science and I still think people should follow the science. But there is a very low intake of vaccines and that is stopping our forward progress because many things depend on you being vaccinated,” Pierre told reporters on Monday.

The Castries East MP noted that COVID-19 is far from over and reiterated an appeal for people to take the vaccine and not fight over the issue.

Pierre who recently tested positive for COVID-19 described himself as a ‘living example of somebody who survived with the vaccine.’

“I was back on my feet. I had absolutely no symptoms after six days – less than six days. In fact, I had no symptoms at all but I followed the protocols,” Pierre explained.

“The idea that even though you have the vaccine you can catch the virus, I think that is a moot point. The point is if you are vaccinated and you have no serious pre-existing conditions you are going to have less pain and less suffering,” he told reporters.

“If you note, and these are not my figures, that is the statistics, if you look at the number of people who are hospitalized it actually is much less than before because even though there is a low (vaccine) intake, the people who are being hospitalized are less,” Pierre observed.

  1. Why the hell you after us to get vaccinated when country like London France stop vaccination go to hell .give it to your family

  2. Pierre you are truly a sick human being. The world is now moving on from Covid 19. We have evil people like Bill Gates admitting that Omicron has done a much better job than the so called vaccines in giving people antibodies against the virus. Scientists worldwide are now admitting that the injection is not effective against the virus, to the extent that WHO has stated that vaccine manufacturers should focus on making a vaccine that is effective against Omicron rather than trying to boost their way out of the pandemic. It is there for the world to see that the so called vaccine has not worked, has killed and maimed several thousands the world over – yet you my prime minister are asking that we the citizens of this country blindly follow the science, the same science that has been used to enrich the vaccine manufacturers and their cronies, the same science that said that it was safe to force a vaccine in it’s trial phase upon the world’s population without first knowing its side effects and level of effectiveness. Yes my PM I wonder what has gone wrong with you, what promise did you make to your handlers on the taking of the vaccine by your countrymen. Whatever your promise- you can now say to them that we are slaves no more and illiterate no more. Yes we can now read!!!!!!!!

  4. Hampering with what progress we need to know…you want your people to put their lives in danger for your benefits, youths open y’all eyes the power is in our hands…the struggle is real for some while these guys and their old hacks leave lavish.

  5. What progress is not taking the vaccine hampering? Pierre you are the one hampering progress in St Lucia at present. Seek some help from Kenny cause Helaire, Richard and king will lead you astray.

  6. “If you note, and these are not my figures, that is the statistics, if you look at the number of people who are hospitalized it actually is much less than before because even though there is a low (vaccine) intake, the people who are being hospitalized are less,”

    There you are telling the people that the percentage of vaccinated people is low but in the same breath you are saying that because we are vaccinated hospitalization is low. Is this guy brainless. Will complain about the low percentage of vaccinated and also tell them that because of the low percentage of vaccinated hospitalization is less when this is not a fact. That same science say that the omicron virus which we now experiencing in the 5th wave is less dangerous than the delta virus

  7. Stop reporting on the vaccine rate and see how little hampering it truly is. Move on… Half the world has… Stop watching American news

  8. But there is a very low intake of vaccines and that is stopping our forward progress because many things depend on you being vaccinated,” Pierre told reporters on Monday.

    I wonder which forward progress mr pierre. Please enlighten us. You are the ones who have forced the businesses to hire only vaccinated people. You have the power to change it.

  9. oh ho so if the people in the hospitals are far less now than before then why should we rush to get the vaccine? also let me remind you sir that Colin Powel the former secretary of state in the USA was fully vaccinated and he still died either way i see it its a slow progress but eventually we will get there

  10. What kind of progress is he talking about? What ‘many things’ depend of us being vaccinated? Please be clear and elaborate on your point?

  11. Pierre continue to show his stupidity. Vaxxine or no the result is the same. Just wait till you see all the data from those companies the court ordered released. I hope you can live with yourself trying to coerce something on your people that offers no benefit with so much risk. Hope you can sleep at night.

  12. Why this BS anecdote from Pip? It’s just more layman’s lame science atop the same 2-year faux (read that as “no”) science from so-called health professionals (aka “witch doctors”), desperately trying to hide their poodle status to big Pharma’s chihuahua, Fauci (whose criminal form dates back to the beginning of the HIV scam).
