Dr. Patrick Baguma the District Health Officer – Masindi has threatened to arrest health workers who are dealing in the sale of corona virus vaccination cards.
According to the health expert, some people have resorted to buying vaccination cards from the different health centres or hospitals instead of being vaccinated.
Baguma revealed the issue this afternoon in the Masindi district covid19 taskforce meeting held at the resident district commissioner premises, he warned health workers, and said that if any health worker is caught in the act will be handed over to the police.
The health expert also told taskforce members that he will be checking the medical entry book on daily basis to ensure the numbers are matching with the cards issued.
Dr. Rogers Musinguzi the head of case management Masindi says that those found selling or buying immunization cards should be arrested with immediate effect because they are breeding the spread of the deadly corona virus pandemic.
“They are affecting our work, we can keep fighting the virus when unvaccinated people are getting cards. I won’t compromise that,” he told the task force members.
