RECIPIENTS of the first jabs of the COVID-19 vaccine rolled out this Thursday have given hope to the nation by dispelling fears over the vaccine.
Looking ahead with optimism, Privilege Musvanhiri, a journalist, is one of the Frontline workers who received the first jab of the COVID-19 vaccine as it was unveiled this Thursday.
For him, like many who took the bold decision to go through the inoculation process, it is a vaccination of Hope to ending the distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
I have lost so many friends and relatives to the virus and for me, I took the decision to protect both myself and my family and the people that we interact with on a daily basis. So for me, the rationale lies in that I cannot fear the vaccine and not the virus itself. This is actually a good process, said Musvanhiri.
Frontline health workers were among the first people to receive the vaccine on Thursday, setting the tone for the mass roll-out of the programme in other provinces on Monday next week.
While some will remain pessimistic about the jab Health Times Online Editor Michael Gwarisa who received the vaccine had a positive tale to tell.
For me, this is the correct thing to do. By taking this vaccine I am helping to put an end to the spread of the virus and this is something that I see as a positive contribution to my nation, he noted.
With all the misery that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, this needle becomes the much-needed answer to ending the crisis that has plagued humanity.
Many will be waiting for their turn across the country as the programme is implemented in all parts of the country within the next 72 hours.
