Shuaib said: ‘It’s my pleasure to inform you that from this next stage of the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out, we have initiated Sunday Vaccination.
‘It’s in a bid to ensure members of the Christian population that may not have had access to the vaccine for any reason are given a chance to be vaccinated at their places of worship.
‘Let me state that response from the field is highly positive and I truly thank all Christian leaders who have opened their churches door to the vaccination team and for encouraging their members to take COVID-19 vaccine during Sunday service.’
