We were fortunate enough to have Mr. Katongo Mutale Gibson, a Biomedical Scientist from Kalulushi General Hospital Laboratories, come to MfA and give some very important information regarding the Covid 19 Vaccine. There has been too much conflicting information on vaccines. Misinformation and Disinformation have the potential to impact people’s attitudes, beliefs, knowledge and intention to accept vaccination but Mr. Katongo helped by explaining and answering various questions from a medical and scientific point of view regarding the importance of the vaccine and how it helps reduce the spread of Covid 19.
After the sensitization meeting with Mr. Katongo, we had some staff members actually go to for the vaccine at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium where it was being administered and they are all very well. We will continue to encourage everyone to act now as it will help protect everyone from the deadly virus.
