More Residents Respond To COVID -19 Vaccination In Anambra

Reports from various parts of Anambra State indicate that vaccination against COVID 19 is in progress at the Primary Health Centres and Maternal Child Health facilities across the State.

According to UNICEF Desk Officer in the State, Mrs. Franca Madike, who went on media field monitoring, health workers were readily available and people coming out in good numbers to get vaccinated at the designated areas.

At Amawbia Maternal Child Health and Awka Correctional Centre Health facilities, both in Anambra Central District, appreciable level of compliance was noticed, and success recorded.

Mrs. Caroline Moudozi, who came for her second jab, having received the first dose earlier, expressed gratitude to UNICEF, WHO and Anambra State Primary Healthcare Development Agency for their collaborative efforts at making the vaccine available in the State.

On his part, Mr. John Chukwu urged residents of state to ensure they support the efforts of the Government in making life better for the citizenry, pointing out that the society needs to be appreciative of efforts of those who provide the free medical facilities.

The Matron in charge of Maternal Child Health facility Amawbia, Mrs. Ifeyinwa Anigbogu, applauded the exercise, but called on Anambra State Government to consider the recruitment of more health workers in the State to replace those that have retired for some years, noting that manpower shortage is hindering progress of health care delivery in the sector.
