In our team meeting this morning, before we broke off with our groups to continue static clinics, we found out that we had actually administered more than 2000 vaccines yesterday! So far, this year’s drive has substantially surpassed the 2017 drive. Despite the fact that many residents of Zomba attend church services on Sunday, and we were expecting fewer people to visit the clinics, one of our static clinic teams still administered 140 vaccinations, whereas on this day last year, 98 vaccinations were administered.
The weather was pleasant today, but a bit chilly. I spent the day with my team at the Mvuu static clinic, which we set up outside in the shade—it was a nice change from the Oklahoma heat I’m accustomed to this time of year. Tomorrow, we start walking door-to-door to administer vaccinations, and I’m sure we’ll start to feel the heat more then.
I picked up a bit more Chichewa today! My group taught me how to ask the pet owner if his or her pet is male (wamuna) or female (wamukazi).
