Why are so many Africans leery of COVID vaccines?

Reduce exposure to Covid-19 and start shopping online



Africa has received 32 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, about 18 million have made it into people’s arms.
Growing vaccine scepticism in Africa means doses that are available are either being destroyed or given away.
UN officials say launching a rapid vaccine drive in countries where it takes decades to inoculate children against diseases like measles or yellow fever is a challenge.
The COVID variant first detected in India has been found on the African continent but without enough vaccines available and few vaccinated, the fear is the situation can only get worse.

  1. answer: because africa kind of knew about coronas since like 5000 years ago, and that giant pharma repackaged it as version 6.0 and called it covid contagion, and in other news, buy xpeng now, is the lifetime opportunity (wink, tip, my billionaire bosses have plans), 1 second ago
    we in asia are all going long 100X leverage btcoin from 10am NYC time, so yankersters join party?

  2. This is not the whole story. People in Africa are also well informed about the side effects of astrazenica, which already forbidden in many european country for People below 40s even in the UK. In addition, African People seems to have a genetic advantage compare People with neandartalian genes, which partly explain why there are less causality compare to the rest of the world. Finally, 90% of African People are young therefore astrazenica is not suitable for them because of the side effects which impacts 2/6 young People. We are in a globalisation. Even in à very small village People has smartphone, so there are no more possibilities of imposing european vaccin agenda on Africa. You need to update your western view on Africa 😅❤🖤💚Hotep 🙅🏾‍♂️

  3. Gee. I don't know. Maybe because prior experimental vaccines were met with disastrous, genocidal results? I just can't figure out why they wouldn't want it. SMH.

  4. Same thing happened in rural areas of India. People hesitate to take vaccine because of fear and myth.
    But now they are crowding at health centre's to take a vaccine and there is shortage of vaccine.
    I am also taken Astra Zeneca Vaccine and it is protective.
    Be Vaccinated Be Safe 🙏🙏🙏

  5. VAERS data released shows 118,902 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 3,544 deaths and 12,619 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 23, 2021.

  6. Who even knows what they send there is actually real vaccine or something else, people cant either trust their leaders coz most are stooge of west, they should continue to refuse given majority of africa population is young therefore can withstand virus.

  7. Africa is a favorite testing ground for large pharmaceutical companies for vaccines and new drugs due to lack of oversight and regulations. The pharamceutical companies need guinea pigs and many of the drugs often come with unforeseen and disastrous side effects.

  8. Rational people can view the vaccine two ways. The early bird gets the worm, or the 2nd mouse gets the cheese. If you think the vaccine is safe and will protect you, by all means take it. If your concerned about the vaccine, wait and see what happens to the 1st mice.

  9. Because of REVELATIONS 13….NO ONE CAN BUY OR SELL WITHOUT THE MARK OF THE BEAST PFIZER NOW WANTS MILITARY BASES IN COUNTRIES IN EXCHANGE FOR THE VACCINE THIS IS AN AGENDA you ALL….WATCH GRAVITAS PFIZERS ABUSIVE VACCINE DEALS ON YOUTUBE TO SEE WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON!

  10. there is serious hesitancy in the UK please don't believe our bulls&*t media. they are threatening us with lockdowns in areas of low take up, even though we only opened hospitality 2 weeks ago. it really does not feel like free will anymore.

  11. As a Ugandan I can confirm that president Museveni didn't take the vaccine,he took vitamin D injection 😂😂😂 we won't take that vaccine no matter what.
