He was fine when he left home in the morning to take the vaccine. He was vaccinated at 12pm and complained that he was feeling weak immediately afterwards. At 5 pm he suffered a stroke and collapsed.

He was taken to Gutu Mission Hospital and later transferred to Masvingo General Hospital. He was transferred to Parirenyatwa Hospital where he died yesterday.

Ivainashe said the family was not aware that Gwandure had high blood pressure.

Meanwhile, Provincial Medical Director for Masvingo Province, Dr Amadeus Shamu said he was aware of the case but had not been informed that Gwandure has since died.

He said there was a possibility that Gwandure had high blood pressure.

  1. no body wants to die pliz if u say the vaccine is safe then figure out all its health requirements rather thn discover them wn somebody dies ..what blood pressure

  2. People should have their blood pressure and,Diabetis checked before Vaccination at the vaccination sites.Some people may not be aware they have these conditions.It should not be assumed that all people who come to be vaccinated know their health status.Make this facility a priority,.Check for these
    conditions and any other conditions . which might give adverse side effects before giving a Jab.My advice as an ex health worker is all thse testing gagets should be thre at the testing site.We dont want to kill people while doing good.
