He said the opportunity given to foreign nationals to be vaccinated in Liberia against the Covid-19 should be welcomed as the pandemic is the concern of everybody be it Liberians or not.
Jeety who believes the campaign is being carried out based upon their request to the Health Ministry, thanked the team for responding without delay reminding that the second dose of the AstraZeneca Vaccine is expected to be administered in June at the same venue; and that complete their vaccination process against the virus.
“Being that health is important, it is everybody’s business because once you are vaccinated, you are not only saving yourself but dozens of other people including but not limited to your family people,” Jeety noted.
Health Ministry’s Programme Manager, Adolphus Clarke, commended the foreigners including the Indians for showing the true meaning of nationalism by reaching out to the Ministry to permit Indians and foreign nationals in Liberia to be vaccinated.
He said the government is making sure that people who are contributing to the country’s economy are protected from the pandemic; indicated that over 2, 700 Liberians have already been vaccinated and that the Ministry is still receiving reports from all 10 sites where the vaccinations are taking place.
