Richard Oleo the Pastor at Faith Baptist Church in Masindi town has asked Christians to get vaccinated against the deadly corona virus disease.
President Museveni Yoweri recently asked people to embrace the ongoing vaccination against the deadly corona virus disease. The head of state who lifted lockdown on worship places and allowed gathering of at least 200 people asked worshipers observe the standard operating procedures as well as getting vaccinated against the deadly virus.
Addressing the church members on Sunday morning service, Pr. Oleo said the vaccine is safe and free, and on the same note said that in order for worship places to remain opened they should get vaccinated against the deadly virus.
The preacher who got his second dose of AstraZenecca vaccine in July this year told believers that they should lead by example mostly during this trying moment of the deadly pandemic which has hit the entire world through getting vaccinated.
He further told believers to desist from paying attention to the social media rumours that vaccines are not safe. “I got my second dose of AstraZenecca, and I have never got any complication, let us get vaccinated so that we can be safe,” he asserted.
Oleo also asked Christians to continue observing the standard operating procedures even though they get vaccinated against the deadly corona virus disease so contain the spread of the deadly pandemic.
The service which had less than 200 believers was conducted amidst strict standard operating procedures including social distance, masked members, hand washing/ sanitizing and others.
It should also be noted that many top government officials including President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, first lady Janet Museveni, Dr. Diana Atwine the permanent secretary at the ministry of health, mention but a few got vaccinated against the deadly corona virus disease.
