Written by on

Botswana Nurses Union has called on government to delay roll out of the astra Zeneca vaccine and allow for further engagements on it’s efficacy.Speaking to YaronaFM news this morning, President of the Union Obonolo Rahube said there are still concerns among nurses and the general public on this vaccine.Rahube said nurses had just been dealing with some patients around the country claiming to have noted severe side effects in the measles vaccine administered recently.Thus, Rahube said government must engage nurses further and allay fears that the vaccine is not as safe, adding that also, if the SA variant is dominant, the vaccine may not be so suited locally.
