Get Vaccinated# Defeat COVID-19
The COVID-19 vaccination which was introduced in March 2021 is still continuing until all eligible people are vaccinated and protected. The service remains available at all health facilities when there are no mass vaccination campaigns. From time to time the Ministry of Health and Child Care conducts mass vaccination campaigns in different communities.
What you need to know about COVID-19 vaccines?
COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing severe illness and death. Getting vaccinated protects you, your friends, your workmates, your family and the nation at large. COVID-19 vaccines remain effective across different variants of the virus and people should continue to get vaccinated even when new variants come. Vaccines provide protection against long COVID which has been linked with the ongoing omicron variant outbreak. Parents and caregivers should encourage and allow children from 12 years upwards to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
