Tanzania’s President advised to get Covid-19 vaccines for citizens

– –

A task force set up by Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan has recommended to her to initiate steps towards getting citizens vaccinated against Covid-19.

The experts declared COVID-19 vaccines effective and safe for use, urging the president to join the COVAX facility that shares the jabs.

This is a major step away from previously held notion by the government under late President John Magufuli who was a Covid-19 skeptic.

The recommendations by a coronavirus committee formed in April by the President were given by the chair of the group at a press conference at State House in Dar es Salaam on Monday.

“The government should do mass mobilisation, preparation to receive vaccines, storage, transportation and people should be free to be vaccinated or not,” committee chair Said Aboud said in a televised speech.

Among the 14 recommendations provided, the experts advised the government to start publishing accurate statistics on the disease.

Under Magufuli’s tenure, Tanzania also stopped reporting coronavirus data in May 2020.

“The government should provide accurate statistics on COVID-19 to the public and WHO for the public to get accurate information from authorities and respect agreements and regulations that the country has ratified,” Aboud said.

They also urged that any alternative medicines to treat the virus pass scientific standards.
