Namibia’s Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) together with the country’s Ministry of Health and Social Services jointly activated a countrywide roadshow campaign, dubbed “Get vaccinated, Kick COVID-19 out of Namibia,” in Windhoek, the Namibian capital, Thursday.

Activation events across the rest of the country are set to run from October 25 to December 10, aimed at vaccinating between 150,000 to 400,000 individuals during this period, MICT said in a statement, adding that various vaccination sites in all the 14 regions will be visited by high-level political office bearers and officials from different ministries and agencies for public mobilization.

Meanwhile, the COVID-19 Information and Publicity Cluster chaired by MICT has selected nine Namibian artists and influencers to be ambassadors of the campaign during the roadshow.
