Booster Doses To Be Offered To Specific Groups Of People -Dr Jane Ruth Aceng

Dr. Jane Ruth Acheng has specified the different groups of people that are going to receive the Covid-19 booster doses. She said this while addressing the media about the current Covid 19 situation.

“The Ministry of Health will offer booster doses to the elderly, security officers, teachers, medical workers, boda boda riders, bus and taxi operators, bar workers, market vendors, and the media. These were recommended for booster doses due to their high level of contact with the public. They are eligible if they had full vaccination at least 6 months ago.”

She also commented about the use of vaccination cards for passengers. She said this is mandatory and they are working on a system that will verify the authenticity of these cards.

“The Ministry of Health is working on a system to be able to validate vaccination cards. This will enable us to apprehend anyone with fake vaccination cards. All passengers aged 18 years and above must present proof of vaccination of at least one dose if they want to use passenger service vehicles around the country.”

People have however complained about the booster limitation. According to them, this is unfair especially because they don’t fall in those categories that Dr. Aceng has mentioned.

“What about us the rest, so you are leaving us to suffer. My appeal is that let everyone get the booster dose. Not this segregation we are seeing. Thanks,” a one Musiime said.
