Covid-19 Vaccination, United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Meets Nigerian Pastors
English Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, this week, met with London-based Nigerian men of God, Sola Fola-Alade, and other local area pioneers at the Tab London, Lewisham, over Covid-19 vaccination.
“Hi folks, I’m here at The Tab. I’ve been talking to some pastors about the amazing works that they do to encourage the take up of vaccinations,” Johnson said in a video posted on his official Twitter handle on Saturday, Fola-Alade, a trained medical specialist, is one of the Lead Pastors at the Liberty Church, London.
Speaking at the session with Johnson, Fola-Alade said, “Not only am I a pastor of a church but I’m also a medical doctor by training. I do understand people’s fears and anxieties concerning the speed and the development of the vaccines and the things that are out there concerning how the vaccines were developed.”
He energized the individuals who had just taken the antibodies to advise others to do theirs in order to control Covid related deaths.
With more than 113 million affirmed instances of COVID-19, including more than 2.5 million related deaths recorded worldwide, the need for mass vaccination can’t be overemphasized.
England started its inoculation program last December after it affirmed the Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine, raising hopes for a success in the pandemic, which has killed in excess of 122,415 individuals out of the more than 4,000,000 infected individuals in the UK, as indicated by the World Health Organization.
Johnson, who went through days in intensive care with Covid-19 in 2020, called the vaccination program a “huge step forward in the UK’s fight against coronavirus”.
