Gambian women’s voices on COVID-19 vaccines: “We’re scared”

“Our life since the coronavirus arrived has been very difficult. No one had anything, and no one was able to work. If I do not wake up and go to work at the water, I will not have anything for my children. Sambou’s husband is older and can no longer work. She alone makes money to feed their five children. “When COVID-19 broke out, we were told that no one should work. For us, if we sit at home without going to work, what do you expect us to give to feed our children? If your husband isn’t strong enough to work and you both sit at home, how will you survive this along with your children?

——— Here are their concerns, in their words.

OUMIE SAMBOU, 50, UNVACCINATED The TRY Oyster Women’s Association represents more than 500 women, many of whom are reluctant to get vaccinated against COVID-19. These women fish under darkness of night without fear but are anxious about the vaccine. They say they can’t miss a day of work if it means being sidelined — even briefly— because of side effects from the jab.

Mboob, head of the TRY Oyster Women’s Association, tries to educate members and her staff about COVID-19. “Every time we had a meeting … I would tell them about my friends and relatives who had died of COVID-19. FATOU JANHA MBOOB, 67, VACCINATED

——— “I’m not convinced to accept the vaccine. My mind did not accept it; this is why I said I will not take the vaccine.”
