COVID-19 Vaccinations!

Here in Zambia, the Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, has been visiting schools to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to children aged 12 to 17. As a COVID-19 testing centre, VOH Chongwe received a supply of the vaccines, and we are now vaccinating our staff and children!

We are very grateful to the government of Zambia for ensuring that communities across the nation are well informed about COVID-19 and the vaccines.

Before the children get vaccinated, their parents receive contact details for the Ministry of Health to have their questions answered. They also receive consent forms to sign on behalf of their children. We have already noticed a drop in the number of COVID-19 cases, serious illness, and death since vaccinations began.

Zambia’s vaccination program is helping provide all-around protection to the children of Zambia and their community at large. The vaccines also prevent absenteeism in schools due to illness.

We are very thankful that here at VOH Chongwe, we have such a well-equipped clinic and staff who can assist with this vital vaccination program!
