    they sent help to Fleming hospital also in St. Martin where a large percentage of the staff refuse vaccinations. this will not play out well, as the new guys cannot afford to stay here for an extended period of time, then what? big demonstration tomorrow here on the island as the mandatory vaccinations for health care workers goes into effect on monday.

    Diana, I just read an article concerning the university hospital in Guadeloupe. Almost 75% of its employees decline to be injected. The director of the hospital considers it impossible to enforce the vaccination mandate, which took effect Wednesday, and keep the hospital operational.
    the government is going to have to back down.

    The government will never back down on the vaccination mandate. Instead they'll send more health care workers from France, as they have done already a few weeks ago: https://actu.fr/ile-de-france/paris_..._44108210.html

    The health care workers refusing the vaccination will eventually lose their jobs. It's already happening in some hospitals in France where more than 3000 health professionals have been suspended. For most, it will be a temporary situation, according to Olivier Véran (Minister of Health).

    The vaccination rate (fully vaccinated, > 12 years old) reached 82% nation wide, and 89% amongst the health care workers. Obviously the situation in the overseas territories is not quite the same (not only in the Caribbean, but also in French Polynesia), hopefully this trend will slowly turn.
