In part IV we discussed the solutions to the Coronavirus pandemic. In this part we continue with the discussion of solutions. This leads me to the fourth solution, the vaccines. Vaccines have been developed by Scientists as a means of preventing people from being infected by a certain disease.

The world has vaccines for flu, polio, tetanus, hepatitis B, mumps among others. According to the Centers for Diseases prevention and Control CDC, a vaccine contains the same germs that cause the disease, but they have either been killed or weakened.

When a Vaccine is administered to person, the body develops an immunity to the disease, thus reducing the chances of infection. Viruses are infections that spread very quickly and can be dangerous to mankind. To prevent them from killing people massively, vaccines are developed against them. Coronaviruses have always existed, however a new strain appeared in Wuhan, China in November 2019, it was termed as COVID-19; Corona (Co) Virus (VI) Disease(D) 2019 (19). COVID 19 has disrupted the world tremendously, because of its dangerous effects, countries had to take preventive measures by declaring lockdowns to slowdown the rate of spreading infections as long term solutions were being explored. A Vaccine is believed to be long-term or lasting solution and the vaccine for COVID-19 was found.

Developing a vaccine is a process, it takes time, between 5-10 years and sometimes longer. According to public information, the COVID-19 vaccine was produced in less than a year! HIV AIDs has been with us for 30 years, there is no vaccine! This reveals weaknesses in our politicalsystems and global priorities. COVID-19 vaccines are thus riddled with controversies.

At the beginning of 2020, varying information was floating around about the virus and the vaccine. Let’s starts with the one where the virus was intentionally produced to create a market for vaccines for the big pharmaceutical companies. In fact, it is reported that in the first quarter of 2021, the pharmaceutical companies declared dividends worth US$ 26 billion to shareholders! This money is believed to be enough to vaccinate the whole of Africa. All this coming from the sale of vaccines! So if the virus was created for purposes of making a vaccine to make money; well, people are making money and at the expense of others, with illnesses they did not bring to themselves.

It is also rumored that the vaccine came out much earlier than what we know publicly?! I love rumors, they make up anything. That means that the virus was created intentionally. But who knows, who can conform this? You need an article from the British Journal of Medical Science.That is one part of the vaccine stories, why it was created, nobody can confirm.

So this year, the government of Uganda was able to get a vaccine. It is reported that 864,000 doses of the Astra Zeneca Vaccine wereprocured for people in the priority sectors. That is those in essential services like Medical, Security, and Education. The people who continuously interact with others. Vaccines in Uganda are controversial, so yes the vaccine was received with skepticism by the public because there is a “history” about vaccines in this country which is reported to have been associated with HIV AIDs.
