Tanzania Makes U-turn Recommends Covid-19 Vaccinations

After an entire year cruising on an opposite course, Tanzania has suddenly made a U-turn and now accepted to vaccinate its population against Corona virus.

President Samia Suluhu Hassan recently formed a special committee to evaluate and monitor Covid 19 pandemic. This 12-man committee has advised her government to procure covid-19 vaccines.

According to reliable details, this committee has made 19 recommendations to tackle the further spread of the novel coronavirus in Tanzania.

Prof Said Aboud the chairman of this special committee, said ” we recommended that Tanzania provide information on the presence of the disease as well as take steps to strengthen all preventive measures to curb the threat of the third wave of virus.” 

Under these recommendations, priority is given  to health workers, civil servants, religious leaders and pilgrims, the elderly, the chronically ill, security forces and those traveling abroad.

Prof Aboud said the committee advises the government continue monitoring the situation as it leads towards allowing Tanzanians to freely vaccinates against Covid 19 using WHO endorsed vaccines.

“The committee advises the government using its institutions continue and move to allow free vaccines using jabs listed by the WHO, because the vaccines are effective and safe since they are scientifically proven.”

‘Despite these proposals, the National Immunization Technical Advisory Groups (NITAG)  and Tanzania Medicines and Medical Devices Authority (TMDA) should continue to be involved in providing advice and control of the vaccine,” he said.
He said since the outbreak of Covid 19  in March 2020, Tanzania has been hit by two major waves and now due to the trend of the pandemic in other countries, there is a threat of a third wave.
