MASINDI: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2021

Steven Wandera, the President Greater-Masindi Media Practitioners Association (GMEPA) has asked fellow Journalists to get vaccinated against coronavirus.

He made the call after getting his first coronavirus vaccine dose at Masindi district general hospital on Wednesday.

Wandera explains that the best way to eradicate the deadly coronavirus pandemic is through getting vaccinated.

“I’m working and doing my duties without any problem, those saying that the vaccines have effect on our lives are liars,” he testified.

Wandera has therefore asked fellow media practitioners and other people to get vaccinated so that the economy can be reopened.

Following the call made by the GMEPA President, over ten Journalists went to be vaccinated immediately and others are promising to get vaccinated since the exercise is open to all citizens.

Masindi district officials have applied many techniques to ensure that people are vaccinated against the deadly coronavirus pandemic. Some of the techniques including, public address system which is traversing the entire district mobilizing the public, health radio talk shows, radio announcements and others.

Dr Brian Mugisha the Assistant District Health Officer In-charge of child and maternal health said that they have created more vaccination centers to ensure that many people have access to vaccines.

He added that many people were turning up for the vaccination exercise thus yielding the desired results.
