Sources to HICGI News Agency, indicate that Teachers are priority for vaccination ahead of Uganda Government plans to re-open schools which have suffered closure following the second wave of the pandemic.
The Executive Director, Dorothy Kiseka last week said there was a campaign of vaccination particularly targeting the teachers. She disclosed that more than 100, 000 were vaccinated calling others to go and be vaccinated. “The vaccines are still available, KCCA healthy centres like City hall, Kisenyi are free for vaccinations to take place and also any other healthy centres near you.” she noted.
H.E Kate Airey revealed that the British Government will donate more vaccines to Uganda next month which will be able to boost the capacity.
Since Monday, vaccination campaigns have been going on and the target is 100,000 doses to be given to Kampala people. This campaign will go on till Saturday across all the static sites and additional outreach sites which will cover about 50% of the covid cases and this will include the market and schools.
