Kumahood actress, Christiana Awauni, has shared some challenges she went through at a Covid-19 vaccination centre.

The well-endowed actress, in an interview with Nana Ama MacBrown on United Showbiz said she dressed up well with her nose mask on and left home to the vaccination centre. When she got there she saw grownups there so she decided to join that queue because when someone does the same thing to her she wouldn’t like it. 

According to her, when it got to her turn, they took her card and ask her her date of birth but she told them it’s on the card. The nurse then told her she can’t receive the vaccine because she is not 60-years-old. Please watch the video below:
