Vaccine inequity in Uganda

Selective vaccination started on 11 March 2021 – three months after mass vaccinations started in Britain and the US.

 Due to insufficient supplies, priority was first given to people at higher risk, including health workers, teachers, security personnel, the elderly, and adults with co-morbidities.

While vaccination was later expanded to all adults, children and adolescents continue to be left out, despite some vaccines having proven safe for children as young as 5.
