Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | In a bid to secure the health and safety of its employees and the communities at large, SafeBoda has announced a vaccination drive for all members of its community and beyond in line with government guidelines, it said on Sept.24.
The vaccination program, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Private Sector Foundation Uganda, and Kampala Capital City Authority commenced today at the SafeBoda Academy in Kyebando and will run through the following week.
The company is facilitating whoever turns up to for the exercise. Ricky Rapa Thomson, the co-founder, and director at SafeBoda said, “safeguarding our community members against the potential threat of Covid-19 as early as possible is our topmost priority.”
The company recently held a similar drive specifically for SafeBoda drivers aged 50 and above, their spouses, and company employees categorized as a high risk given the nature of their job.
President Yoweri Museveni this week announced that he would relax all COVID-19 related restrictions in all sectors by end of the year when close to 5million people are vaccinated.
