Cameroon postpones vaccination campaign

Cameroon has postponed the rollout of its third Covid-19 vaccination campaign which had been scheduled to run from Wednesday until 31 October.

The campaign will now begin on 17 November, Dr Manaouda Malachie, the minister of public health has announced.

The authorities hope to administer 400,000 doses of vaccines.

Many Cameroonians are still reluctant to take up vaccinations, preferring to use traditional drugs.

Last week the country’s teachers’ unions wrote to President Paul Biya threatening to strike if vaccination was to be made mandatory.

Only 3% of Cameroonians have received a first dose and 1.1% are fully vaccinated, according to Dr Malachie.
