CAN counsels Anambra residents on COVID-19 vaccination


The Christian Association of Nigeria, Anambra State chapter and community leaders have advised Nigerians to receive the first, second, and booster dosage of COVID-19 vaccination ongoing at all the Primary Healthcare Centres.

They made the call on Tuesday, during the Anambra Social Mobilisation and Technical Committee, a United Nations Children Fund assisted project domiciled in the State Ministry of Information, and concluded advocacy meetings with traditional rulers, religious leaders and influencers on COVID-19 vaccination.

The state CAN chairman, Venerable Joseph Nweke discouraged the people from believing everything that has been said about COVID-19 vaccines on social media, especially unverified and unfounded stories.

He said, “Although the COVID-19 vaccine just like measles or yellow fever vaccines may have slight harmful side effects on some recipients but most people do not experience any side effects after being vaccinated.

“People irrespective of their religious beliefs should embrace the COVID-19 vaccination. World Health Organisation, which is so passionate about the health of human beings will not permit the administration of COVID-19 vaccines if they will pose any threat to anyone or race. It is not an anti-christ mark as claimed by  overzealous preachers” said Nweke.

The chairman, Awka Diocesan Priests Fraternity, Rev. Fr. Valentine Uzoezie, after calling on people to go out and receive COVID-19 vaccination frowned at the way Nigerians abused or despised free medication.

According to the Chairman Anambra State Christians Pilgrims Welfare Board, Prof. Steve Ibenta,” Isreal has vaccinated 100 per cent of their population and they have not all died.

“If President Joe Biden of the United States of America, all the world powers and our own bishops and clergymen have taken the vaccine why should one not take it? People die because of superstition, ignorance and inaccurate information,” said Ibenta.
