Captain Sekiwa Abutomale Malaketa of Palomyo is one of more than 250,000 people in Suriname who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus. The authority figure wants to set an example for his community in southern Suriname.
Malakaita is the first villager to be vaccinated. He wishes to provide more education, information and vaccinations to the residents of Palumeu. At the Bureau of Public Health (BOG) vaccination site, the captain was vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine on Monday, November 1, 2021.
“I feel so good because I got vaccinated,” he says. He understands that COVID-19 can make people seriously ill and kill people. This is also well known within his community. However, the eminent person has it that more education and information is being brought to Palumeu. He points out that there are many old people in the village who also need protection.
Captain Malakaita will be present again at BOG on December 27 for the second injection. He would likely come with a group of villagers so that they would also be vaccinated.
“When I return, I will definitely tell my people about it and encourage them to protect,” he said.
To date, a total of 125 453 shots were captured in Suriname. This means that 202,504 people have been fully vaccinated (2 shots). 48,117 people received only one shot.
