MASINDI: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER, 29, 2021
Since President Museveni tasked the district officials including the district health officers, chief administrative officers, and the resident district commissioners to mobilize the public to get vaccinated against the deadly corona virus before this week ends, leaders in Masindi have injected a lot of effort to ensure the people are vaccinated.
The leaders have resorted to use the public address system which is transversing the entire district, radio talk shows, and radio announcements which have boosted the number of people turning up for the vaccination exercise.
Dr. Patrick Baguma the District Health Officer – DHO Masindi explains that people are turning up in big numbers for the vaccination exercise. “I’m getting phone calls from different people who want to get vaccinated against the deadly corona virus,” he adds.
On the same note, the health expert explains that they have created more vaccination centres, immunization team, outreaches, organized mobile team, and are also continuing with community sensitization.
Dr. Baguma says this has been done to ensure that the 947 doses they have are exhausted before Thursday this week. He has also asked all the district taskforce members to sensitize the public since the DHO, RDC, and CAO can’t exhaust the entire district without supporting hand.
