Matemba made the call as the numbers of vaccinated people has presently reached 173,830.
He attributed the increased numbers to the availability of correct information on the vaccine, saying earlier on people had different misconceptions towards the vaccine and this made the not to get the jab.
“This is a positive development, slowly people are beginning to extinguish between wrong and right information and this is the more reason why people are getting vaccinated,” said Matemba.
