THE Qiloane Nursing Assistants Association executive committee has shown great appreciation to the government for giving first preference to health care workers during the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination campaign, the President of the association David Matšela has said.

He said after the nurses were vaccinated following the launch of the vaccination which was led by His Majesty King Letsie III, no reports of any related deaths of nurses were received.

“There haven’t been any reported cases of severe side effects among groups of vaccinated groups who are in the frontline in the fight against the pandemic,” Mr Matšela said.

He however, appealed to Basotho from all their walks of life not to hesitate to go for vaccination as all the myths associated with it are untrue and meant to cause confusion.
