Bahamas: PM: Vaccine refusal could lead to “fewer visitors”

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Making another push for Bahamians to be prepared to take the COVID-19 vaccine when the time comes, Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis said yesterday that refusal to be inoculated from COVID-19 could result in a resurgence of the virus in The Bahamas and ultimately lead to fewer visitors traveling to the nation.

“I urge all of you to take the vaccine when you are eligible to do so,” Minnis said during the opening of the Staniard Creek Bridge on Andros.

“And millions of people around the world have now taken a vaccine.

“By vaccinating a large number of Bahamians, we will be able to open up even more.

“This will create more jobs and get our economy back on track.

“For tourism, visitors will want to travel to places where the virus is under control.

“We are seeing [that] the demand to come to The Bahamas is overwhelming.
