On the road with Malawi’s Covid vaccination vans

Ros Russell, the Editor of the Evening Standard’s Vaccine for the World project, takes over the Tech and Science Daily this week, to bring you the people behind the scenes tackling Covid-19.

With a fourth Covid wave around the corner, Malawi has stepped up its mobile vaccination campaigns. 

Today we’re joined by Charles Pensulo, a journalist based in the city of Blantyre in Malawi. 

In an effort to increase the uptake of vaccines, Malawian health workers are taking jabs out to communities. Charles has followed one of the minibuses carrying doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine. 

He updates us on Malawi’s vaccine rollout and why the country is struggling in the face of the Omicron variant.
