Health pass to hospital: Tension is clear in Martinique

This Monday, October 11, 2021, the Health Pass will come into effect in institutions that receive the public. The day the hospital unions wanted to mark with a mobilization in the island’s hospitals. During a meeting, management proposed to set up tests.


Since this Monday morning (October 11, 2021), security agents have been responsible for controlling the health pass of caregivers and persons seeking access to the hospital, except in emergencies.

Hospital unions have erected roadblocks in front of the entrances of various hospitals on the island (Ford-de-France, Lamentin, Trinidad, etc.) against the implementation of the vaccination duty and health pass.

After a few hours of closure, access to hospitals was released in the morning. A new mobilization is scheduled to take place again tomorrow (Tuesday, October 12, 2021).

According to Benjamin Karel, about the percentage of people vaccinated at the CHU, it is difficult to establish a person because he received little feedback following his requests from staff.

In September 2021, Director of the Martinique Regional Health Institute announced 60% of hospital staff and UGTM General Secretary of Health Serge Aribo, 30% of CHUM staff.
