Minister of Health Jonas Chanda says government has worked hard to ensure that it can confidently introduce the COVID-19 Vaccination Program as the 9th strategic objective in the COVID-19 response.

Dr. Chanda said it is therefore worrying to note the level of scepticism, hesitancy and the conspiracy theories including ill-informed myths surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines.

The Minster has therefore urged Zambians to trust government adding that the vaccines that will be administered are safe.
