Saint Lucia’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), expressing concern over ‘fake news’ in relation to the COVID-19 vaccine, has asserted that the vaccine is safe.

Doctor Sharon Belmar-George said there are many reports of people who died after taking the vaccine.

But she suggested that people need to investigate to determine what underlying conditions those who died had.

Belmar-George indicated that the vaccine will not reduce deaths from other causes.

She spoke Friday during an appearance on the National Television Network (NTN).

“If you are already very sick and you took the vaccine, it will not prevent you from dying of other causes,” she explained.

As a result, the CMO asserted that deaths after the vaccine would not be related to taking the vaccine.

“A lot of the articles, when you do find out from the countries, those were persons with other serious underlying conditions and not related to them taking the vaccine,” she said.

According to the CMO, as of March 9, medical officials have administered over 268 million COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Belmar-George said the figure is based on reports from national governments.

“And there have been no, zero cases of deaths that have been caused by the COVID-19 vaccine,” the CMO stated.

Belmar-George made it clear that every death matters.

And she declared that the Ministry of Health is not merely interested in statistics.

However, the CMO explained that there’s no live virus in the COVID-19 vaccine.

As a result, Belmar-George said people who get the jab will not develop the virus from the vaccine.

She also said there’s no DNA within the vaccine.

“There’s no chip in the vaccine,” the CMO said.

“We want us to continue to be guided by the science,” she stated.

“The vaccine is safe – it has been tested,” Belmar-George asserted.
