With Covid19 vaccinations underway all around the world, Uganda has finally joined the party as the 1st round of vaccinations begin today. In the event held at the Maternal and Neonatal Hospital in Mulago, the vaccination process was officially flagged off today, 10th March 2021. Hon Minister Dr Jane Ruth Aceng was among the first to receive the vaccine, in a bid to build confidence and deter fears that are currently widespread in the country concerning the safety of the vaccine.
