The Working Group made the following recommendations:
i. The MoH/ UNEPI should focus on achieving primary series vaccination targets before administering booster doses as fully vaccinated individuals have much lower SARS-CoV-2 hospitalisations, ICU admission, and mortality rates than unvaccinated individuals. In addition, the vaccinated are less likely to get infected, and therefore less likely to transmit the infection to others.
ii. While the Working Group continues to monitor the evidence closely, MoH/ UNEPI should embark on a coordinated, evidence-informed approach to generate national data required for decision making.
iii. MoH should invest in training data entrants at the disctict level and ensure adequate communication to avoid such backlogs in data entries, under and misreporting during data entry activities.
