Medical professionals have urged the public to not have any fear or doubt over the Sinopharm vaccine drive.
They claim that a majority of citizens have received the Sinopharm jab adding that it contributed largely to preventing COVID-19 deaths and severe bouts of the virus.
Speaking at a media briefing at the Department of Government Information today, Physician Dr. Eranga Narangoda said a majority of vaccinated citizens were administered the Sinopharm vaccine dose, adding it largely contributed to the drop in the number of deaths, reducing heightened chances of pneumonia while Intensive Care Unit admissions also reduced significantly.
Dr. Narangoda claimed that research also proved that the Sinopharm vaccine boosts immunity.
He stated that even though many types of vaccines are being administered, they don’t recommend a specific vaccine type to be administered for those above 18 years of age.
Dr. Narangoda said the effectiveness of all vaccine doses remains the same.
