Those who still have vaccine hesitancy are holding the country hostage. Their refusal is keeping us in doors or with masks while in public.

Everyone who has received the jab should be an ambassador of the Vooma vaccination campaign. We need to tell our brothers and sisters that vaccines saves lives and we are living proof of that.

This is thanks to the leaders of the two major churches who took the vaccine and agreed to be posted on social media in order to encourage their members to accept the vaccine.

Those have not received the jab please go out in numbers and get the jab. Getting the jab will not only save lives but the economy too.
