HH VaccineMore than 1.4 million people have received their COVID-19 vaccinations in Zambia representing 7% of the eligible population. The target is to vaccinate 70% of the eligible population aged 12 years and upwards.

Evidence shows that getting the population vaccinated is so far the only sure way to stop the spread of the Corona Virus and development of new variants. Those infected can have it without any symptoms hence easily passing it on to others. Vaccines help prevent serious illness and death.

You may have long-term health issues after COVID-19 infection. Even people who do not have symptoms when they are initially infected can have these ongoing health problems.

All COVID-19 vaccines currently availbale in Zambia are effective at preventing COVID-19. Staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccination gives people a high level of protection against adverse effects of COVID-19.

You should get a COVID-19 vaccination, even if you already had COVID-19. Emerging evidence shows that getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 illness provides added protection to your immune system.

From December, Zambia started giving COVID-19 booster shots to citizens fully vaccinated. Those vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are eligible for a booster shot two months after the initial jab.

However, people vaccinated with Sinopharm, Moderna, Pfizer, or AstraZeneca shots will be able to receive the booster only six months after the final dose.

Children aged between 12 and 18 are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, the WHO-approved vaccine for the age group

DAPP Zambia has responded to the urgent need of preventing more variants of COVID-19 by encouraging vaccinations among staff and members of the public.

Most staff have been voluntarily fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  

Four vaccines have been approved for use in Zambia, Pfizer/BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Sinopharm.  Click on the link below to find a vaccination center near you.
