St.Vincent PM Says Only Those Vaccinated Against Covid Can Flee Island After Huge Volcanic Eruptions

Fact checked
St Vincent volcano

The Prime Minister of St. Vincent  Ralph Gonsalves has announced that only those residents who have received their Covid-19 vaccinations will be evacuated following two powerful volcanic eruptions on the Caribbean island

Tens of thousands were forced to flee after the La Soufriere volcano on the St. Vincent erupted on Friday, sending a column of ash 10km into the sky.

As the crisis unfolded, cruise ship arrived to evacuate residents from the island. But speaking at a press conference yesterday, the islands Prime Minister confirmed that only those who had been vaccinated against coronavirus would be allowed to board the ships. 

He said: “The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship.”

RT reports: With some 16,000 people living in the ‘red zone’ near the volcano, the authorities had been scrambling to put together evacuation plans in the hours leading up to the blast.

For viewers following the evacuation effort through television news reports, one detail of the plan may have stood out. “Cruise ships are evacuating people from the island,” CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell announced on Friday, adding that “only those vaccinated against Covid” would be allowed to leave.

The clip, which has since raised some eyebrows online, turned out to be factually correct. St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ prime minister, Ralph Gonsalves, did announce in a press conference that evacuees would need to receive a Covid shot before boarding any of the two Royal Caribbean cruise ships and two Carnival Cruise Line’s vessels that arrived on Friday.

Furthermore, Gonsalves said that the neighboring islands of St. Lucia, Grenada, Barbados, and Antigua would accept evacuees, but only if they had been vaccinated.

However, despite Gonsalves’ announcement, neither Royal Caribbean nor Carnival Cruise Line have mentioned anything about keeping unvaccinated passengers off their ships. Royal Caribbean did say that “all precautions will be taken to protect the health and safety of the crew and passengers who board our ships,” but did not elaborate further. Nor have the governments of the aforementioned islands released any official statements clarifying whether or not they would accept unvaccinated evacuees.
