In a statement posted on its Facebook, Minsa indicates that, as part of the vaccination campaign against covid-19, it has decided to create four new high-performance vaccination posts, which will come into operation as of this Wednesday.

In addition to the previous posts, the posts on the University Campus of the Agostinho Neto University, the Faculty of Engineering, the Pavilhão de Arquitectura of the UAN, the Terminal of the Port of Luanda and the National Health School are added to the posts.

According to the note, service at these centers will take place between 8am and 5pm, "upon presentation of the printed registration form".

"We reiterate that vaccines are free, safe and save lives", completes the note.

Search doubles and lines become endless

The guardianship announcement comes days after the demand for vaccination posts against covid-19 in Luanda has doubled, especially with young people filling the almost endless lines, mostly in search of the first dose, when the authorities secured reservations to respond to the search.

Floods and almost endless lines at the entrance of vaccination posts in the capital and in the interior, was the scenario recorded last Friday at the posts of Magisterium Mutu-ya-Kevela and Cidadela Desportiva in Luanda, which were filled from the first hours.

The increase in new infections and deaths associated with covid-19 in the country and the mandatory vaccination certificate, as of October 15, especially in public and/or closed places, contribute to the large adhesion of citizens to health posts vaccination.

More restrictive measures to contain the spread of covid-19 in Angola were determined by the authorities, whose new decree on the situation of public calamity began on Friday, 1 October.
