Uganda’s leader Yoweri Museveni has joined world leaders like Joe Biden, Uhuru Kenyatta and Paul Kagame who have been vaccinated.
This happened on Saturday at State House Nakasero.
“First Lady Janet Museveni and I got our Covid-19 vaccine today in Nakasero. I encourage all Ugandans who qualify for this vaccination to go to health facilities and get it. But remember to keep observing the SoPs; wear masks, wash, sanitise hands and observe social distance,” he said after he had got the jab.
President Museveni had early this month said he was undecided on which, of the COVID-19 vaccines, he will use to protect himself against coronavirus. The 75-year-old President had said then that his ‘people’ are still studying, which of the vaccines will be effective for him.
The actual vaccination for the two was done by the Health Ministry Permanent Secretary, Dr. Diana Atwine.
Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta and Paul Kagame(Rwanda) are some of the presidents in the region who have taken the Covid jab.
Following the exercise, Atwine hailed Museveni and the First Lady for leading by example.
