Ministers in Cameroon, including the Prime Minister Head of Government Chief Dr Joseph Dion Ngute at the front line have been administered the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Ministers assembled at the Star Building yesterday Wednesday April 21 where they were immunized against the deadly virus by a team from the Expanded Programme on Immunization in charge of the vaccination campaign.
Those who received the vaccine include Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute, Defence boss Joseph Beti Assomo, the Minister of Higher education, Prof Jacques Fame Ndongo, Post and Telecommunication boss Minetter Libom Li Likeng and Labour and Social Security boss, Gregoire Owona among other cabinet Ministers and Government officials.
This vaccination falls in line with the national immunization campaign launched last week by the Minister of Public Health.
Many are of the opinion that this move intends to weaken the skepticism of Cameroonians on the vaccine and encourage them to take it.
Statistics from the Ministry of Public Health reveal that so far, more than 3000 people in Cameroon have received the vaccine, be it the Chinese Sinopharm or the British AstraZeneca vaccines.
