The prime minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson has met with church and community leaders, including Sola Fola-Alade, a UK-based Nigerian pastor, to discuss COVID-19 vaccination.
Speaking at the meeting with the prime minister, Fola-Alade, who is the lead pastor at Liberty Church, London, said as a medical doctor, he understands people’s fears concerning the quick development of the vaccines.
“Not only am I a pastor of a church, I’m also a medical doctor by training. I do understand people’s fears and anxieties concerning the speed of the development of the vaccines, and the things that are out there concerning how the vaccines were developed,” he said.
In a post on his Twitter handle on Saturday, Fola-Alade advised people to be careful about misinformation concerning the vaccine.
“While people do have valid fears & questions regarding the efficacy and safety of the vaccine, however, we must be careful about misinformation out there and look at the facts & make our decisions based on objective facts and not on myths,” he wrote.
