COVID19 vaccination is still free at different health centers
The Ministry of Health has dismissed a claim that every Ugandan is now required to pay before being vaccinated.
While launching the mass vaccination campaign in Karamoja, Dr. Diana Atwine, the permanent secretary Ministry of Health said that, COVID19 vaccination is still free.
She further said that, they have received complaints from different people about some medical workers asking for money before vaccinating and issuing vaccination cards, which she says is not accepted and professional.
Dr. Atwine further urges all Ugandans who have not yet vaccinated to go to the nearby health centers for jabs.
As of today, Uganda has so far administered 16,152,210 does of the COVID19 vaccines.
