The Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng led her team to parliament to request approval of a 18.5 billion shilling supplementary budget for the initial procurement of the Covid-19 vaccine. This is part of the 59 billion shillings required by the Ministry to procure 18 million doses of vaccine. These would then vaccinate 20% of the population equivalent to 9 million people. On 7th February, Allana Kembabazi (Program Manager - Right to Health) was hosted on NTV Talk of the Nation to discuss issues surrounding Government's efforts in securing COVID-19 vaccine doses.
