Rwanda Security Force (RSF) deployed to fight insurgency in Mozambique have started receiving the third dose of COVID-19 vaccine (booster dose) administered to all forces who took the first two shots and eligible for the third one.

The exercise which started in Afungi and Palma in Cabo Delgado Province is set to continue to all areas of RSF deployments including Mocimboa Da Praia, Mbau and Limala.

They have received the booster dose at a time when some African countries have confirmed a new severe variant of COVID-19 dubbed Omicron which spreads faster.

Rwandan troops were deployed to Cabo Delgado Province on the request of the Government of Mozambique which sought assistance to quell insurgents that had captured the northern part of the country.

So far, Rwandan troops in collaboration with Mozambicans and SADC forces have repulsed the insurgents that had occupied the area for more than four years.

Besides, the Government of Rwanda is administering the booster dose to members of the elderly and people with chronic diseases.
