Ministry of Health started its planned activities for the COVID-19 vaccination exercise in the country with a launch that took place on 10th, March 2021.
However, Ministry of Health Spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyona in a press statement revealed that some unscrupulous individuals have embarked on creating Deep Fake videos and circulating them online to discredit the COVID-19 Vaccination exercise in the country.
The Minister of Health, Dr Jane Ruth Aceng Ocero was the first Ugandan to take COVID-19 Vaccine jab in broad day light, he said.
On record, a total of 310 persons received their COVID-19 Vaccination jabs at the launch event, with Mulago recording 280 and 30 at Entebbe Regional Referral Hospital.”
Ainebyona called upon the general public to disregard the manipulated videos with a logo of one of the local media houses that have been making rounds on various online platforms.
He has also referred all those that doubted the minister had taken the vaccine to visit the Ministry of Health social media pages i.e Twitter and YouTube to watch the videos that are a true reflection of the National Vaccination launch that happened at Mulago Specialised Women and Neonatal Hospital and Entebbe Regional Referral Hospital.
