Major political parties in the country are encouraging their followers to accept the Covid-19 vaccine set for national roll out tomorrow, Thursday.
Top leaderships of the parties recently held a sensitization meeting under the Centre for Multiparty Democracy (CMD) umbrella where the issue was earnestly discussed.
In a statement, delegates have since resolved to sensitize their respective followers countrywide on the benefits of the vaccine amid growing public misconceptions against the jab.
Delegates to the CMD gathering included representatives from the United Democratic Front, the UTM, the Democratic Progressive Party, the Peoples Party, the Malawi Congress Party and the Alliance for Democracy.
President Lazarus Chakwera will get the Covid-19 jab at Zomba Field Hospital while Vice President Saulos Chilima will be vaccinated in Mzuzu on Thursday.
The exercise will mark the launch of the vaccine administration across the country aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19 which has claimed lives of over 1000 Malawians.
