Reports of side effects of vaccines and fake news have had implications for the desire to vaccinate in Africa. As a result, thousands of vaccines are destroyed, Reports Press Agency AP. Health officials call this a worrying development on a continent where fewer vaccines are distributed than anywhere else in the world. 1.3 billion people live in Africa, which is 16 percent of the world’s population. The World Health Organization says only 2 percent of vaccines are kept there.
Some experts fear that Africa will face negative consequences if the proposed 60 percent population is not vaccinated by the end of 2022. But concerns about the safety of the astrogenogenic vaccine, which is often available as part of the Kovacs program, are causing further delays.
Distrust of vaccines is widespread on social media, driven in part by the general distrust of the authorities. Sites like WhatsApp share the news that vaccines can cause infertility. It is doubtful at what speed the vaccines were developed.
In an effort to increase the number of vaccines, the Malawian government has relaxed the rules for obtaining the vaccine. Anyone 18 years of age and older can now be vaccinated. Uganda is also considering doing this. In addition, it is believed that influencers will force people to record a shot. The Uganda newspaper Daily Monitor recently announced that more than 280,000 doses would expire by July if the average number of injections administered per day was not improved.
