And while the Police Senior Command is also pushing its officers to get vaccinated - they are getting a lot of pushback. Reports tell us that the Police Association has expressed serious concerns about how their over two thousand members are expected to be vaccinated by Monday.
However, 7News has learned that one formation has an astonishing rate of vaccinated officers. A reported 98% of the officers in Easter Division Region 4, which comprises San Pedro and Caye Caulker have gotten at least one vaccination. This reportedly includes two pregnant officers.
The officers are perhaps led by the example of an unvaccinated officer that got sick and was sent home and left deal with himself. This is a sharp contrast form last year - before there was any vaccine - and the formation commander, Superintendent Chris Noble had to take care of 50% of his officers who contracted COVID. One of the officers in that formation also had to be intubated and sent to the COVID unit ICU in Belize City, but survived - yet is still having post Covid symptoms.Channel 7
