Marleen Temmerman: “In Kenya barely 5 to 10 percent is vaccinated, there is no stock” – Listen Select

While the discussion is raging here about the sense and nonsense of a third jab, on the other side of the world there is a shortage of vaccines. “Covid is a global problem, we can only be safe together if everyone is safe and vaccinated” Marleen Temmerman responds in ‘De Morgen’. “As long as countries are excluded, the virus will continue to spread, and it can become resistant or mutate. The third shot is actually not necessary, except for high-risk groups. That is pure selfishness: ‘How do we get our freedom back as soon as possible’.”
African countries cannot even think about vaccination readiness, says Temmerman. “The biggest concern is to get more vaccines. As soon as vaccines were available, people were queuing in long lines at the vaccination centers. That shows a great willingness. That is not to say that there are no vaccine doubters, but luckily not on a large scale I don’t understand why people in Europe and Belgium say ‘I have the freedom not to get vaccinated’ We don’t see diseases like polio anymore, but in countries where people don’t vaccinate they still exist I think 80 to 90 percent of the population here is looking forward to the vaccine.”
