Govt starts Mass vaccination of Covid- 19

The Ministry of Health has started a mass covid-19 vaccination camp at Kololo Independence Grounds to increase access to vaccinate and tame Covid-19 surge.

The exercise which begins today will run for 10 days.

The ministry of health spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyona says they are doing the camp to ensure no vaccines are wasted given the expiry date of July 10th.

Uganda launched its mass COVID-19 vaccination program in march, joining a host of countries in Africa to initiate the inoculations.

Results of COVID-19 tests done on 29 May 2021 confirm 524 new cases. The cumulative confirmed cases are 47,147.
