About 3000 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 at the mass vaccination drive at Kololo Independence Grounds.
Out of these, 2,483 received their first jab of the Pfizer vaccine while 331 received their second jab of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The vaccination drive, dubbed “Fenna Tugemebwe”, is a brainchild of Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) under its Raising the Bar program.
Under this project, UBL partnered with the Ministry of Health, the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Coca-Cola Beverages Africa, Safe Boda and several other public and private sector players.
Jackie Tahakanizibwa, UBL’s Corporate Relations Manager, says the drive was a success and lays hope for the safe reopening of the economy.
President Museveni has since the economy would be fully reopened once 4.8 million people have been fully vaccinated.
