HARARE – Government on Monday launched a Typhoid Conjugate Vaccine (TCV) mop-up exercise aimed at ensuring that children who missed the jab in May this year can be inoculated.

Over four million children in Zimbabwe received the lifesaving TCV in schools and clinics after the Health ministry, with support from the World Health Organisation (WHO), embarked on a 10-day multi-antigen vaccination drive aimed at children aged between nine months and 15 years.

WHO country office director Alex Gasasira yesterday told NewsDay that the mop-up exercise would be a great opportunity to save the lives of many young people.
