Most residents in Bole Savannah region didn't take it smoothly as they publicly rejects the idea of immunization against the covid-19 disease since they believe the vaccine is not authentic hence their stance on rejecting the immunization.
Nkilgi FM a radio station based in Bole made inquiries about the public rejection of the vaccine by the people of Bole and this is what the residents has to say concerning the covid-19 vaccine.
Mrs Amina, a resident said she was hoping to hear that, researchers from Africa have discovered the covid-19 vaccine since she doesn't believe in what the whites will produce as vaccines.
Mr Moses another Bole resident said, that he will be convinced if only those in higher authority got vaccinated and nothing happens then he will also get immunized.
Mr Aminu, a student from the Bole-Bamboi district, expressed the fear about the vaccine being contaminated with corona virus and hence, would rather infect more people.
Mr Mohammed Abdullah, a resident and a Fashion designer, advocated that government should equip health facilities with resources and logistics to undertake COVID-19 mass testing in order to ascertain the status of each citizen in the country.
