Up to 2,814 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 at the Kololo Independence Grounds last Saturday 16th, October, which turned out to be the biggest number of people to be vaccinated at a single location in one day in Uganda yet.
The vaccination drive, dubbed “Fenna Tugemebwe,” is spearheaded by Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) under its ‘Raising the Bar’ program. The brewery partnered with different stakeholders, and NBS TV, Nxt Radio, Sanyuka, because of their leading positions in their respective markets, were trusted with the job to provide the much-needed publicity using our platforms.
Sanyuka TV General Manager and Next Media Services Chief Strategy Officer Joseph Kigozi told their website, “As Next Media Services, we use our platforms to encourage Ugandans to get vaccinated for COVID-19. This initiative benefits all of us because we have all been affected by this pandemic. Once we all vaccinate, many businesses will be able to run normally again.”
The thousands of people vaccinated at Kololo had the chance to interact with Next Media Services stars Canary Mugume, Kaiyz, Zahara Totto, and other artistes on the ground.
