BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI – Minister for Health and Social Development Hon Carvin Malone (AL) has said the Government of the Virgin Islands is working to have children aged 12 and under vaccinated and awaiting the necessary approvals to do so.

Hon Malone made the announcement during the Tuesday, September 14, 2021, edition of the Honestly Speaking radio show hosted by Claude O. Skelton-Cline on ZBVI 780AM. 

According to the Minister, here have been children as young as two years found to be infected with the virus, adding this must be addressed sooner rather than later. 

He said for the VI to move ahead with  vaccination for the mentioned age group, approval would have to granted from the CDC, CAPHA and Public Health England. 

Young children getting 'contaminated' with virus - Hon Malone 

“In our very own hospital we have persons who are 30 months old, and they had to be tested because they have been found in terms of contamination with the virus."

“So we have to be able to get all of those school-age kids in the daycare straight up, so we are working in terms of getting that done,” he said.

Hon Malone said for ages 12-17, some 277 persons were vaccinated through the USVI/VI Vaccination Bubble Initiative.

He said the territory is looking to buy the necessary refrigeration to procure the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines approved for children.

      Pfizer that we using now was NOT approved. It was a new vaccine produced from Pfizer is what was approved. It's not even on the market yet. Do not be fooled with what they pushing out there. It is just to make people believe that Pfizer which is already in use was approved

    This was said to be an experimental drug and I cannot believe that government is allowing this to happen. Look at Israel for an example of what is happening to its people. We need to put the Almighty God in the forefront. We need to bring up our level of faith in God. There are too many mix messages out there concerning covid -19 and the vaccines. They are hiding the truth from us.

    I’m curious as to why the minister made this statement. If I recall most counties have decided to not give the vaccine to children. The UK said they would no give it the children 18 and under and I check and this still stand. Also the other vaccines on the market have a similar stands for children 12 years and under. This misty due to not enough information on the effect it will have on them. As you know many children who have taken the vaccine have develop several issues including myocardial (not sure of the spelling) which is a heart condition.

    I also notice that him and his team not addressing any issues people have after taking the vaccine. Next why some health workers who test positive continue to work while positive(the did not quarantine thus issue the other day) but others still home nearly three weeks and both test positive.

    This is where I draw the line. My kids will not take no vaccine for Covid even if it means they can’t go to school. This is ridiculous. Pfizer is the only vaccine even close to approving for kids below 12 and to be honest their track record isn’t looking good. One thing for us as adults to take it and be lied to, but for us to let it happen to our children too? BVI STAND UP NOW!

    God has shown you his agenda (The Ten commandments). Be not afraid and look at the devils agenda( The Georgia Guide Stones, maintain humanity under a specific number), and chose who you will serve. The one and only true God is now looking for real soldiers to stand up against evil and sorry to say he is disappointed that it is not the church. Dont sit by the wayside and be quiet and watch evil unfold before your eyes. Remember what God said about who will decieved you. (The devil employees) You shall know them by there works. God is not a god of confusion. Take a look outside of the BVI and see whats taken place. Trying to introduce the new world order in a tricky way but Good shall rain over evil.

    Wow. I guess they are ignoring the fact that the vaccine still does not protect you from getting and spreading the virus. Children are less likely to get seriously I'll or die from the virus yet they asked for approval, they are the ones that is asking to vaccinate children from 2 to 12.

      If you studied u would know what the jab thing is. God's kingdom is not divided against itself. The vaccine was predicted in the bible more than 2000. Years ago. It is the platform for the anti Christ. Watch n see. Maybe u can study before you come here n speak. Go to Daniel, revelation 17, 18 or better read the whole book so you get understanding not for me but u.
