NMS and Ministry of Health would like to thank all those who turned up and braved the long queues during the Free Yellow Fever Vaccination exercise that took place at Mandela National Stadium - Namboole from 28th November - 08th December 2017.
The numbers were huge. Over 36,000 Ugandans were vaccinated against Yellow Fever at Mandela National Stadium alone not mentioning the over 30,000 Ugandans that were vaccinated at Kololo Independence Grounds last month during the URA Tax Payers' week. This notwithstanding, there has been a Public outcry especially on social media asking NMS and Ministry of Health to extend the Free Yellow Vaccination exercise for at least one more week to allow more people the chance to be vaccinated against Yellow Fever.
This is therefore to inform the General Public that NMS together with Ministry of Health will conduct the Free Yellow Fever Vaccination exercise from Monday 18th December to Friday 22nd December 2017 at Mandela National Stadium starting from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. There will be no more extension after December 22nd 2017. Please come and be vaccinated. The vaccine is FREE. All you need is a copy of your National Identity Card. Children below the age of 18 years can use the identity card of their parents.
