VACCINE HESITANCY: Health officials want more to go for COVID-19 jab
The ministry of health has expressed concern over the low uptake of the COVID-19 Astra Zeneca vaccine among the priority categories. Dr. Alfred Driwale the Assistant Commissioner in charge of vaccination and Immunization services in the ministry has blamed this on the absence of finances to undertake a massive campaign aimed at sensitizing the public about the vaccination program. The negative attitude of the general public towards the COVID-19 pandemic has also further slowed down the uptake of the vaccine. Now, health civil society organizations want the government to come up with a better strategy that will see all Ugandans vaccinated against COVID-19.
