HARARE – Zimbabwe will next week receive another consignment of 600 000 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine.
Last week, the government kicked off the Covid-19 vaccination programme with the first phase targeting frontline workers across the country following delivery of the 200 000 doses that were donated by China.
Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care Dr John Mangwiro was quoted in State media saying the country will start receiving vaccines every two weeks.
“I am sure the Minister (of Health and Child Care, Vice President Dr Constantino Chiwenga) said the next batch will come every two to three weeks. Definitely, the timetable is there.
“Wherever you are, if you watch the print media, you will see that every two weeks – for instance, at the end of this month, we are going to get about 600 000 doses of the vaccines and we will continue to get this,” said Mangwiro.
