Kabale District stuck with COVID-19 vaccines. Kabale District stuck with 60,000 unutilized Moderna COVID-19 jabs.
Health officials from Kabale District are considering writing to the Ministry of Health to recover over 60,000 unutilized doses of Moderna vaccines.
The district last month received 120,400 doses of the Moderna vaccine to be used during the seven days of the mass vaccination campaign.
But, the health department has since struggled to vaccinate the targeted 125,050 people during the campaign that ended last week.
By Tuesday, the district had 60,000 unutilized doses of Moderna vaccines.
The Assistant District Health Officer in charge of Child and Maternal Health, Paddy Mwesigye, said that many people are still hesitant to embrace the covid-19 vaccination, and there is no reason why they should keep the vaccines yet other districts need extra supplies.
