Mother of 10-year-old Namzi, Nisha Jacob, recently took to the streets of Twitter to boast playfully about her daughter's comic.

In her comical drawings, talented young Namzi illustrates a battle between white blood cells and the coronavirus.

The comic about vaccines and how they work is amusingly informative, and ends with a witty comment that is sure to put a smile on your face.

A Public Health Physician, Jacob joked that her daughter was "Tired of her public health mom ranting about vaccine hesitancy and ridiculous conspiracy theories" and "decided to channel the rage into creativity".

"At least I am getting through to someone," wrote Jacob.
