According to Matthew Oyoku, the coordinator for the Arua City COVID-19 home based care, the demand for cards has increased after Universities allegedly told their students that they will be required to present their vaccination cards once they reopen on November 1st.

He says the increased demand is the one fueling the sale of COVID-19 vaccination cards adding that he has received calls from members of the public asking for cards.
