globally. According to the World Health Organisation, Covid-19 vaccines protect people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying.
According to the Ministry of Health, out of a vaccination target population of 44.3 million people in Uganda, only 12.9 Million Ugandans (29%) were fully vaccinated as of the end of January 2023. This means 24.8 million people (56% of the vaccination-eligible population) were not vaccinated, while 6.4 million people (15%) were partially vaccinated – though it is crucial to vaccinate fully. This brings us to the question:
