Over 11,600 people vaccinated against Covid-19 in 10 days

A total of 11,612 people in Mwansabombwe district in Luapula province have been vaccinated against Covid-19 during the just ended Covid-19 vaccination campaign.

District Health Director, Misheck Kabamba, disclosed the development in an interview with ZANIS in Mwansabombwe.

Dr. Kabamba said the health promotions team was on hand to sensitise the communities on the importance of taking the vaccine and to correct some of the misconceptions which people have about the vaccines.

He has since encouraged those who have been vaccinated to continue adhering to the five golden rules in order to avoid contracting the pandemic.

Dr. Kabamba further explained that the vaccination does not guarantee total prevention but reduces the severity of the disease when one contracts it.

And Dr. Kabamba has appealed to those that are not vaccinated to visit health centres and be vaccinated despite the campaign coming to an end.
