Use Your Influence To Gather Masses For Covid-19 Vaccination- Gov’t Cries Out To Musicians
The government has called upon the private sector players including the artists, (musicians) to come out and use their spaces and influence to call upon the public to embrace the ongoing covid19 vaccination that kicked off on March 10, 2021.
Addressing journalists today, the ICT and national guidance minister Judith Nabakooba said there has been a low turn up at most of the vaccination centers across the country, something she says could have been caused by a lot of misinformation about the Covid-19 vaccine.
According to Nabakooba, the job of mobilizing and educating people about vaccination should not be left to the government alone.
Her call comes at a time only 10% of the targeted groups have so far shown up for vaccination ever since the exercise started a month ago.
In his address on Friday, the President said at least 80% of the risk categories have to be vaccinated before full reopening.
