La Soufrière volcano on the island of St Vincent in the Caribbean erupted on Friday, sending a plume of ash 32,000 feet in the air. It erupted again on Sunday, cutting power and ruining water supplies. The government there had reportedly evacuated all 16,000 people in the “red zone.” But with the limited space in shelters for the Island’s 111,000 residents, and limited vaccine availabilty, Prime Minister Gonsalves stated that only the vaccinated could go on the cruise ships sent to help. Even if they were vaccinated that day, they could not go on the ships because of possible reactions to the vaccines. Only 10,519 people had been vaccinated when the volcano erupted.

According to NBC,
Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said in a press conference that people have to be vaccinated if they go aboard a cruise ship or are granted temporary refuge in another island. He said two Royal Caribbean cruise ships are expected to arrive by Friday and a third one in the coming days, as well as two Carnival cruise ships by Friday. Islands that have said they would accept evacuees include St. Lucia, Grenada, Barbados and Antigua……Gonsalves added that he highly recommends those who opt to go to a shelter in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, an island chain of more than 100,000 people, be vaccinated.
The problem with that recommendation is the availability of vaccines has been dismal in third world nations. St Vincent PM Gonsalves himself and his wife had to be vaccinated with the Russian vaccine. Not to mention the people who want the freedom to say no to any of them. So what would happen if that scenario played out in the more populous United States? If a major disaster occurs in the United States, which happens frequently, will shelters take anyone, or will people be required to prove they are vaccinated before being allowed entry? Will people have to line up to be tested for COVID before they get help? Will people be left behind? It’s an ethics question.
A article in Stripes laid it out in terms of the spread of vaccination requirements for just normal business, not to mention a major disaster:
COVID-19 vaccination requirements are fast becoming facts of life in the U.S., spreading business by business even as politicians and privacy advocates rail against them.Brown, Notre Dame and Rutgers are among universities warning students and staff they’ll need shots in order to return to campus this fall. Some sports teams are demanding proof of vaccination or a negative test from fans as arenas reopen. Want to see your favorite band play indoors in California? At bigger venues, the same rules apply. A Houston hospital chain recently ordered its 26,000 employees to get vaccinated…
…“Idahoans should be given the choice to receive the vaccine. We should not violate Idahoans’ personal freedoms by requiring them to receive it,” said Idaho’s Republican Governor Brad Little on Wednesday, after signing an executive order banning the vaccination requirement for people seeking public services. The governors of Florida and Texas have issued similar orders.
“Vaccine passports create different classes of citizens,” Little said.
The island of St Vincent is a simple microcosm of what could happen in larger nations. It’s not an option to stay where they are, as it was in the early stages of the pandemic lockdowns. Volcanic eruptions, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, all have an impact on the lives of people – will the government do the right thing and work to save everyone or will covid-nazis prevail? We have written previously about the vicious attitudes of the people who literally hate those who desire to keep their freedom. We can hope that the lives of the unvaccinated will be as precious as those of the vaccinated.
