There is a “medical apartheid” in Barbados when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccination, says Winston Clarke of the Barbados Concerned Citizens Against Mandated and Coerced Vaccinations.

And he is urging officials to stop forcing children and employees in some companies to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Clarke, the coordinator of the group’s steering committee, was speaking yesterday during a small demonstration at Independence Square in The City where he and a few other individuals continued to voice their concerns about “employment intimidation”.

Clarke said they would not tolerate employers who asked their employees to take the jab or get tested regularly for the viral illness at their own expense. (TG)
