Only 32% of Jamaicans said they would take a COVID-19 vaccine, according to a recently published Gallup poll - one of the highest vaccine hesitancy rates worldwide and far below the around 60-70% that World Health Organization experts have estimated is needed to achieve herd immunity.
Jamaica's government is aware of the Rastafari community's doubts, and prepared for the reality that not every Jamaican would take the vaccine, Health Ministry Permanent Secretary Dunstan Bryan told Reuters.
"Herd immunity can be achieved without having all those populations vaccinated," he said

What I’ve found really disturbing during these COVID times, besides the abandonment of reason and rational discourse, is the glorification of fear and fearful behavior. Submitting to irrational fear has now become a virtue, a supreme virtue along with obedience. Courage, which is overcoming fear in the pursuit of a noble goal, is now reviled and criminalized. I think this is the natural result of decades of moral and ethical relativism propagated by Liberal secularism, especially at educational institutions.
