“We need to save lives now and agree to a Peoples Vaccine!”

Whilst we were enjoying watching the euros in June, in Uganda, their national football stadium was being used as a field hospital to treat COVID patients.

The cases in the country also increased significantly, by 1,000 per cent in June, with only 4,000 people out of a population of 45 million having received two doses of the vaccine. This deadly lack of vaccines is a story that is being repeated across the world, namely in low-income countries.

Having previously raised these concerns in the Senedd, I wanted to find out more about how residents feel about the service and the impact poor services or a lack of service has been having on them.

74% of those that responded states that the service was both unreliable and not value for money, and shared the impact this is having on their lives.
