Katikkiro Launches Mass Covid 19 Vaccination Drive

The Katikkiro of Buganda Kingdom, Owk. Charles Peter Mayiga, has Wednesday 4, launched a two-day Covid-19 mass vaccination scheduled to end on Sunday at Bulange gardens in Mengo, Kampala
The exercise aims at increasing the number of vaccinated people as the country readies for a full reopening of the economy in January.
This comes after President Museveni last week said the government has 23 million doses of Covid vaccines that can be used to vaccinate 12 million Ugandans.
Owk. Mayiga said that the campaign will target the youth and other citizens mainly residing in Kampala. “We expect the public to flock to the Bulange gardens and get vaccinated because the government through KCCA (Kampala Capital City Authority) have provided us with enough vaccines”
He also urged the public to continue adhering to various Covid 19 restrictions and measures in place
“I urge the public to avoid crowded places as much as possible, exercise, have enough rest and eat a balanced diet. When we do that together with the vaccinations, we are guaranteed of overcoming the challenges caused by Covid-19,” he said.
The Katikkiro also warned against misinformation and disinformation about Covid-19 vaccines, adding that Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II who together with the Nabagereka were publicly immunized.
