The Resident City Commissioner Lira city, Lawrence Egole takes on the first race for vaccination against Covid-19 pandemic.
It was on Friday. 12th of March that Egole took concern and decided to be among the first group to get vaccinated.
Being among the top 5 people in Lira city to get vaccinated, Egole told press of how he felt after receiving the first dose of the vaccine.
“I am feeling normal, there is nothing changing here with me and am glad that the vaccine will finally deter me from dying of Corona virus,” said Egole after receiving the vaccine.
The vaccine is said to give strong body immunity against the virus infection.
Meanwhile during the launch, the minister of health, Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng said there is still need to continue wearing face mask even after vaccination.
She says many of the cases they are getting are a result of burials and weddings which are places of mass gatherings.
Dr. Aceng says identification during the exercise is very important as people are supposed to come for second dose.
She says proper identification will stop a repeat of what happened during Hepatitis B vaccination where second dose dropped to 65% and third to 23%.
She also said vaccination is not by force.
