Written by admin on
President Mokgweetsi Masisi will this afternoon get his jab of the COVID19 vaccine. A media advisory issued this morning by Press Secretary to the President, Batlhalefi Leagajang says the President will receive the jab at the Maruapula Community Hall upon his arrival from a working visit in Tanzania.
He is expected to arrive in the country around lunch time and proceed to the vaccination facility.
The President will be taking his jab just more than two months after the country began the vaccine roll-out. Botswana’s approach differed with that of other countries where the heads of state took the first jab to kickstart their roll-out.
The communique from the office of the press secretary says the President had long declared that he shall follow the vaccine roll-out criteria that is used by the government which is age based, and shall be ready whenever he is advised that his turn has arrived.
