COVID-19 Vaccination Center Open!

The prevalence of the novel corona virus pandemic in Cameroon has been a rising concern to many who do all humanly possible to stay safe from being infected with this virus. The wearing of facemask, washing of hands regularly, use of sanitizers and keeping social distancing have been the current practice to minimize the infection rate of COVID-19.

According to health care practitioners, these safety measures so far have proven fruitful since the emergence of the virus. The introduction of COVID -19 Vaccines is another major method to prevent the spread of the virus.  It is in this light that the Biaka University Institute of Buea teaching hospital (St Veronica Polyclinic) commonly known as Biaka Hospital, on Tuesday 10th of August 2021, launched the COVID-19 vaccination center charged with the responsibility to freely vaccinate at least seven persons daily . This center which currently has in stock the Astrazeneca COVID Vaccine and Sinopharm COVID Vaccine is headed by the director of the hospital- Dr. Fon Tita who has been practicing as medical Doctor for over twenty years.

Those eligible for these vaccines should be at least 18 years and above. Before vaccination, recipients are schooled on the different types of vaccines available and the number of doses required to complete the process.

It should be noted that just like any other vaccine, the COVID-19 Vaccine would have sight effects on some recipients including minor headache, fever etc which lasts for few hours. Nevertheless, health experts emphasize the need to visit a medical center if sight effects are severe.

Opening this COVID – 19 vaccination center, six persons received the vaccine including the Director himself Dr. Fon Tita, who took the first shot. The St. Veronica Polyclinic is open for COVID-19  Vaccination every day from 8.am to 4pm.

BUIB: Former Students Collect Originals of Undergraduate Certificates.

Ex-students of Biaka University Institute of Buea BUIB are gladdened with the availability of their undergraduate certificates after years of waiting. This show of excitement was visible during the handing over ceremony of the certificates to the BUIB Nigerian former students who convene at Rosebud Hotel, Abuja Nigeria, for the collection of this document from the University’s administrative personnel.

At the ceremony, the Vice Chancellor of BUIB Dr. Mrs. Francisca Hongla Biaka via a video call, addressed these students and applauded them for their understanding and maturity exhibited over the years as they waited for this important document. She reassured participants of the University’s Credibility and commitment in serving her students as VIPs while calling on them to remain ambassadors of the institution and be professional in their practice.

In addition, the Special Adviser to the VC/Public Relations Officer Mr Singe Ikome Otto, alongside the Communication and Marketing Manager Mme Fomucha Mirabelle representing BUIB in Nigeria, appreciated these students for their years of patience while reminding them of the process involved in the issuing of original certificates as stipulated by the law governing educational institutions in Cameroon. They reiterated that the delay is no fault of Biaka University Institute of Buea but rather the system put in place by the State mentoring institution which however is under review for better facilitation of the process.

On their part, the students immensely thanked the management of BUIB for this great gesture in displacing her workers from Cameroon to Nigeria for the handing of their certificates. This they noted will go a long way to allow some of them gain work promotion.

The event which took place on the 24th of July 2021 in Abuja Nigeria, saw the presence of over 70 BUIB ex students of the Nigerian Community.
