President Hage Geingob says that as a nation, Namibia cannot continue to lag behind others in terms of vaccination rates, thus an acceptable level of vaccination should be achieved. While delivering his new year message, Geingob said that for the sake of its economic survival, Namibia must do business with the rest of the world, and that if the country fails to reach acceptable levels of vaccination to achieve herd immunity, it is effectively cutting itself off from the world and severely limiting the economy’s ability to generate the prosperity which is so desperately needed. The President therefore urged all Namibians “to please get vaccinated,” and “refrain from spreading falsehoods about vaccines that will set us back as a nation”.
