Covid-19 Booster Meets Public Resistance


Concern is being raised about the call for booster shots to be administered amidst the spread of the Omicron variant.

United Democratic Movement member of parliament, Nqabayomzi Kwankwa had taken to Twitter decrying the commercialisation of the Covid-19 vaccination and pandemic.

Kwankwa was speaking as South Africa’s elderly cohort will be eligible for their booster in January.

This is six months after their last Covid-19 vaccination dose.

Kwankwa says that the discussion has not been had about the efficacy of the vaccine that have been administered thus far.

Now scientists continue to learn about Covid-19 and should not be pushing for children to vaccinated as they may become casualties in the world’s battle against the pandemic.

This is the sentiment shared by the Caring Healthcare Workers’ Coalition’s Dr Naseeba Kathrada.

She says that most of her patients that have tested positive for Covid-19 have been double-vaccinated.

Kathrada contends that this shows that there is still much to learn about this strain of coronavirus that has yet to stabalise.
