Jennifer Lalam, a single mother of two and resident of second Jenge village in Central Division, Kitgum Municipality says she hasn’t been vaccinated because of the anticipated bad side effects of the vaccine that has been widely spoken about. Lalam says there were rumours that the vaccine could make a woman barren while men develop erectile dysfunction.
According to Komakech, it is now mandatory for people to present their vaccination cards before accessing public office with the priority being that of the Resident District Commissioner and district headquarters.
Dr. Rose Anna Ademun, the Commissioner of Animal Health at the Ministry of Agriculture Animal Industry and Fisheries, says that the government is unable to carry out mass vaccination of livestock in the country due to lack of vaccines.
The vaccine delivered by the National Medical Stores-NMS includes 2,324 doses of Moderna vaccines and 390 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines. The district health department ran out of COVID-19 vaccines a week ago following what health officials described as an “overwhelming” uptake of COVID-19 vaccine among the populace.
The suspect is Assistant Inspector of Police, Fred Acedri, who is attached to the Counter-Terrorism Police in Para. He is wanted for shooting Michael Edema on the left thigh following a misunderstanding in a bar on Monday morning.
