Hon. Rindikiri Mugambi Assures People: COVID-19 Vaccine Is Safe
Buuri Member of Parliament Hon Rindikiri Mugambi has today led the way by being vaccinated and called on citizens across the country who are making statements and utterances aimed at undermining the vaccination exercise to stop misleading others.
Hon. Rindikiri says the vaccine has been tested and our medical experts are persuaded that its safety is bankable.
The Ministry claims no single case of adverse side effects has been reported among those who have received the jab so far.
This comes amid claims by a section of stakeholders in the healthcare sector that failure to carry out a proper sensitization campaign on the AstraZeneca vaccine is causing fear among citizens.
The Ministry of Health is monitoring the circulation of the new Covid-19 strains by strengthening the existing Covid-19 genomics surveillance so as to make informed policy decisions and public health interventions.
