Both groups are critical to Liberian society, and have proven to be a collective force in the economy and politics. Now that strength is being harnessed to boost vaccine turnout. The mother of three was one of the first in her market to get vaccinated. Kumba Nyuma. Kumba regards her decision as an investment beyond herself, and credits the experience with boosting her confidence and attitude towards her work.
Numerous interactions with customers places market women at a higher risk of contracting the disease. Kumba believes that getting vaccinated has improved her ability to serve the public. We market women are very important in Liberia. We feed households, provide basic goods and services, and are breadwinners for our families.
Taking the vaccine puts me in a better position to do my work. To everyone, I say, move past fear and take the vaccine. With renewed hope, Kumba attributes her year career to staying healthy and dedicated, even in the face of past challenges like the Ebola outbreak.
Both the Ministry of Health and the National Public Health Institute of Liberia have embarked upon outreach efforts to combat misinformation and increase awareness. Misinformation has impacted the s we need from those groups. This awareness appears to be improving uptake from the pen-pen drivers. Franklin P. Franklin takes passengers across Monrovia and credits one of them for motivating him to get vaccinated.
Even when some respond negatively, I do not stop. All Liberians should get vaccinated like I did so that we can kick the virus out and move our country forward. To build upon this momentum, she stresses the need for an inclusive approach involving all citizens. Jane MaCauley, Director General of the National Public Health Institute of Liberia, is hopeful that there will be increased uptake among the targeted groups and the general population, particularly now more vaccines are reaching the country.
This is a wakeup call to strengthen our messaging and enhance accessibility of health workers and the sites, so that the market women and pen-pen drivers can get there and take their vaccines on time. MaCauley is confident that the combined efforts of the Ministry of Health, NPHIL and partners, backed by engagements with community leaders, he of the market women and pen-pen associations, will boost trust in the process.
That way, they can trust you. To succeed with these groups, we must ensure that they have no doubts.
