In Rwanda, there have been days when some people have refused to take covid-19 vaccine because of their beliefs, while others have resigned because they are required to be vaccinated to stay at work, and some have fled the country because of their refusal to vaccinate

"Urubuga rw’Itangazamakuru" (Club de la Presse) of this Sunday 02-01-2022 broadcasted in synergy by twelve radio and two TV stations across the country focused on the “Covid-19 vaccination: Progress and challenges”




Past VUNINGOMA Faustin: Religious

The gusts from MINALOC and RBC said that the vaccination program is being rolled out across the country and that participation is at a good level, despite the obstacles of some citizens, including educated people such as doctors, teachers and other government employees who do not want to be vaccinated.

The invitee from MINALOC said that among the reasons for vaccine refusal are personal health issues, religious beliefs and those who say “we don't want vaccines” without other valid reasons due to various rumors about the epidemic.

RBC said it has begun to approach these categories of those who refuse to vaccinate because it has a higher risk of infection and after discussion some have begun to understand the importance of immunization.

Pastor Fasutin, argued religious believers  to obey government and take vaccines, saying that nowhere in the Bible does the word vaccine appear and those who refuse the vaccine are based on false prophecies.

Regarding rumors circulating about the vaccine, Dr. Albert urged residents not to worry about the vaccine form they are required to sign where it is written that in case of vaccine effect the vaccinated person will not take any action against the state.

 He says it is normal because in the medical services it is not the only form on which the words are written because even the surgeons first sign it or their relatives.

As for the fact that people are still getting a lot of vaccines and don't give them immunity he explained that it has been scientifically proven that people who had their booster are less likely to fall seriously ill from the Omicron variant.

Currently in Rwanda a person who is not vaccinated covid-19 is not allowed to travel to or from Kigali city, to go to the market, to the church, to attend meetings or other public events.
