Zambia’s First-Come First-Serve Approach on COVID-19 Vaccinations Wins Praise

Health Zambia's First-Come First-Serve Approach on COVID-19 Vaccinations Wins Praise

The African Woman Foundation has commended President EDGAR LUNGU and his government for not segregating in the administering of the COVID 19 vaccine.

Foundation Founder and President JOSEPH MOYO says the Covid 19 vaccine in Zambia has been given on a first-come-first-serve basis unlike in some countries where special categories of the population are accessing the vaccines.

Mr. MOYO says vaccine administrations world over have been chaotic with many people who needed to get the vaccine not getting it on time.

He says the Zambian leadership has taken the best approach by allowing anyone willing to access the vaccines, unlike choosing some allegedly more important groups of society.

And Mr. MOYO has urged the opposition political parties to be relevant in the fight against COVID 19 by being part of the solution and not armchair critics, adding that some opposition political parties are condemning the government even on things that it is doing right.


  1. This is nonsensical at best! Other countries have had chaotic vaccine rollout?
    You need to prioritize people at risk and frontline workers! Then you move on to second category of at risk people.
    This first come first serve is a recipe for bribes and corruption.

  2. We do not have a huge ageing or obese population like those in European countries like UK. So we don’t need to prioritize high risk individuals as much here. Our people are relatively healthy so this approach is fine

  3. Mr, Moyo I don’t think you know what you are talking about. Frontline workers were given priority. Is that not segrgation?
    In other countries ,they looked at which age group was most vulnerable. So they found that the above 55 years with co morbidities like High Blood Pressure and Diabetes were highly more likely to die from COVID, The segregation was based on scientific knowledge and not politics.
    So keep your politics to yourself.

  4. Mediocrity at its best…if anything it should be elderly first, Front line workers and people with alignments…
    These bootlickers have no shame…

  5. Did this man actually say not ‘choosing some allegedly more important groups of society’? Wow.
    Anyone ‘willing’ to get vaccines means those with resources and access (including better information due to wealth status) will jump the queue.
    A sensible approach has been highlight by the more intelligent commenters here (not KZ, obviously) – those at high risk of exposure and hence getting sick and possibly dying: the first group then is those with high occupational risk like health care workers; then older people and those with co-morbidities of the virus. The next group should be other occupational risk people like bus drivers, hospitality workers.
    Not rich and middle class people in relatively good health, or worse those with connections.
    When you have a limited number of…

    You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of the day.

  7. The people working in our government system know their job very well. PF is ruling Zambia for almost 10 years now. So, it is very rare that they will do any kind of mistakes

  8. We are proud of President Lungu’s administration and frontline workers for continuously systematically handling the pandemic situation.

  9. I think oppositions, criticizers must keep elections aside and help our government in this instead of creating hurdles in their path.

  10. It is funny to see how HH supporters are criticizing the PF government over the topic of handling the situations. When the leadership quality of HH is famous in Zambia, all well-known party members had left due to his dictatorship, UPND is drowning only because of him.

  11. The PF administration is known for its fair play. No people will be discriminated, under President Lungu’s government. Hence, the first-come-first-serve basis for the dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

  12. But still, UPND and its supporters will have a problem with this system of giving the vaccination shots.

  13. I guess this is the best way to control the chaos. People will automatically know when they will get vaccinated.

  14. I am sure UPND would have created more mess and chaos among people as the losing party is good for nothing.
