Namibian mobile service provider launches COVID-19 vaccination campaign


Namibian mobile service provider, MTC in collaboration with the country’s health ministry on Tuesday launched a vaccination campaign dubbed, 081VAX campaign, aimed at encouraging people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The 12 million Namibian dollars (about 822,000 U.S. dollars) campaign will provide incentives for those that get vaccinated and interested and willing people can register through a digital mobile platform.

According to MTC’s Chief Commercial Officer, Melvin Angula, the digital platform will reduce the burden of queuing up or arriving at a venue to find that the desired vaccine is unavailable.

The campaign is set to commence on Thursday and will be rolled out across the country and will allow people to access information on the available vaccines and allow them to make a vaccination booking from wherever they are located.
