Increase Number of Health Staff In Vaccination Centres.
As Zimbabwe continues to receive more COVID-19 vaccines, Harare residents urge government to allocate many health staff in vaccination centres to speed up and intensify the programme.
In an interview with some of the people who were queuing for COVID-19 vaccine at various centres, Community Radio Harare (CORAH) learnt that while residents appreciate government’s effort of securing more vaccines for it’s citizens, widening of vaccinations centres across the capital city should be incorporated with addition of more health staff in vaccination centres in order to reach head immune.
Addressing the media recently while receiving two million Sinovac COVID-19 vaccines from China at Robert Mugabe International airport, Health Deputy Minister John Mangwiro and Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said the government is expecting a total of 3,5 million vaccines this month.
First and second doses of Covid-19 vaccines are available at over 30 Harare City Council clinics and two central hospitals including private Cimas Borrowdale and Health Point.
These vaccination centres include many high density suburbs such as in Budiriro, Glen-view Mbare, Mufakose, Kuwadzana, Highfield, Budiriro and Kambuzuma among others.
Meanwhile Harare residents are also appealing to the ministry of health and child care to release their vaccination cards as they are not happy with the delays.
