 Director-General

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, World Health Organizations Director-General has asserted that countries should include the aged in their Covid Vaccination program.

 He said there was an alarming narrative in some countries that it’s okay if older people die.

” It’s not okay. No one is dispensable. Every life is precious, regardless of age, gender, income, legal status, ethnicity or anything else. And that’s why it’s so important that older people are prioritised for vaccination,” he said.

He further stated that, most at risk of severe disease and death from Covid-19, including healthcare workers and older people, must come first and come first everywhere.

He added that all governments had a responsibility to protect their own people.

“But once countries with vaccines have vaccinated their health workers and older people, the best way to protect the rest of their population is to share the vaccines, so other countries can do the same,” he said.

He said the longer it took to vaccinate those most at risk everywhere, the more the virus is allowed to mutate and evade vaccines.

“Unless we suppress the virus everywhere, we could end up back at square one,” he warned.

First batch of Covid vaccines arrived on Monday
