Uganda has really changed: before Dr Obote was overthrown by Amin, we used to get vaccinations at schools, while parents go to local dispencaries!

We never got any vaccinations during Amin!

When museveni came on, there was established dates for delivery of medicine to all dispencaries-hospitals in the country!

Why did Uganda allow museveni to destroy the little they have without better alternative?

Even Kampala City had vaccination services right in the City before museveni came on stage!
