The Ministry of Health has today launched an online portal for Covid certificates. While speaking at Uganda Media Center, the Ministry’s senior public relations officer, Emmanuel Ainebyoona revealed that the website has been created to enable individuals download their certificates from the system two weeks after receiving their second dose.
This is because as of 9th August, 2021 based on the Ministry of Health vaccination data, a total of 250,664 (27.7%) have been fully vaccinated whereas a total of 904,601 (79.4%) persons have just received the 1st dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
According to the report, to-date, the Ministry of Health has administered 1,157,251 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine so far.
” We expect additional doses of AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson vaccines before the end of August and early September,” Ainebyoona revealed.
In cases where there are difficulties in accessing the web certificates, he says the public is advised to reach out to the Ministry of Health toll free lines for assistance.
Daniel Nuwabire, the KCCA spokesperson urged the public to go for COVID-19 vaccination at different designated centres and refrain from crowding those near city hall.
“The past 3 days, this inclusive, we have seen rather a high number in our health centers since we serve both residents in Kampala and those coming in. We encourage all residents of Kampala to use those vaccination centers that are close to their residences other than flocking the main ones near city hall,” he said.
Nuwabire further said that under KCCA there are 32 vaccination centers in the divisions of Lubaga, Nakawa, makindye, Kawempe and the central division which nearby residents can access.
