Angola: Luanda Governor Calls On Residents to Join Vaccination Against Yellow Fever

Luanda – The provincial governor of Luanda Higino Lopes Carneiro Thursday in Luanda called on those who have not been vaccinated yet against yellow fever to visit the vaccination areas in order to join the ongoing process.

The governor reiterated the appeal while speaking to Angop, stressing the need for all citizens to be immunised.

The official assured the existence of vaccines in health centers and other posts set up in remote areas where the campaign has not covered yet.

Angola made many progress in terms of improving the health system and vaccine coverage but the current economic situation has compromised the maintenance of the gains achieved so far, leaving thousands of children at risk of not being vaccinated, stressed the governor.
