#COVID-19: DR Congo’s Haut-katanga Province Receives 6000 Doses Of Vaccines

Haut-Katanga province of The Democratic Republic of Congo on Friday, Oct. 29, received 6000 doses of Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccines.

According to Joseph Sambi Bulanda, the Provincial Minister of Health for Haut-Katanga, who received the vaccines, authorities would permit the population to make their choices on the kind of vaccine they want to be vaccinated with.

“We have received three types of vaccines. We have Moderna, Prizer and Johnson & Johnson,” the Minister said.

“Everybody has a choice on the type of vaccine preferred and there are enough in Kinshasa and we shall demand for them according to necessity.”

The Haut-Katanga Provincial Minister of Health urged Congolese  to get themselves vaccinated.

“Vaccination is part of the big pillars in the fight against COVID-19 and since the administrative authorities have got themselves vaccinated, the population must also get themselves vaccinated because to be vaccinated is to protect others.”

Haut-Katanga is among the zones most affected by the coronavirus in the country, and it has acquired solar plates to enable it to store the vaccines in the freezer in rural areas, for the purpose of keeping the vaccines in the best atmospheric conditions.
