AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccination goes on slow pace in Malawi

Only 5, 417 people have received the covid-19 AstraZeneca jab, out of the 400, 000 earmarked for the vaccination exercise in the first phase.

Getting the jab

This is as of Wednesday, day 3 since the vaccination was rolled out.

This week, the ministry of Health is vaccinating all health workers and state security personnel and next week will be the turn of those with underlying health conditions and those above 60 years of age.

Meanwhile, as the roll out of the AstraZeneca vaccines continues national wide, Rumphi district health office has received 4,500 doses for the exercise in the district.

Esau Mkamanga, Health Promotion Officer for Rumphi District Health Office said the exercise has started with health workers, those with chronic conditions, police officers and prison warden.

Mkamanga added that the exercise is also targeting those on age category of 60 years and above.

He further said two teams of vaccinators were training and have started with Rumphi.

Who can allow nyansi za Astrazeneca to be pumped into their precious bodies??? Musiyeni Chakwerang’ombe abayitse afe ekha tilibe naye ntchito. As for me , wanga ndi bonongwe, mandimu, luni, kholowa, nthudza, mpinjipinji, ziwala, chisodo, chidede, therere, etc etc. Ukamadya zimenezi immunity imachita bwino. Kubedi mphamvunso chimodzimodzi. Osati zopusa za Astrazeneca zi.

False and money oriented prophets and other idiots are confusing the poor masses. Please don’t forget that our culture is very superstitious and believes in silly things. There was a strong of kupopa magazi in the southern region and albino killings believing that they possess something for business. People having sex with their mothers to get rich. This is the society that we live in. When you tell such a people they will believe. Even Magufuli helped in confusing Malawians and some stupid ones are saying he has been killed by Mzungu. He refused that covid-19 existed.
