Stampede For COVID-19 Jabs In Mash West

Karoi residents inundated Karoi Hospital and other health facilities in Hurungwe District at the weekend to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as the coronavirus wrecks havoc in Mashonaland West Province.

The government last month declared Hurungwe, Kariba and Makonde as COVID-19 hotspots and put them under localised lockdowns.

Hurungwe District medical officer Munyaradzi Wilbur Chidaushe on Monday told NewsDay that people from nearby farms and villages have responded well to the vaccination drive. He said:

We expect the demand to keep increasing as citizens heed the call by the government to get vaccinated.

Kariba district medical officer Godwin Muza said there was also a huge demand for the life-saving vaccines in the resort town, but health authorities are yet to get more supplies of the doses after previous supplies ran out.

Members of the public are also reportedly coming for the jab in droves in Makonde District, which incorporates Chinhoyi.

Chinhoyi municipality is inviting residents to get immunised at its clinics in Mzari, Chikonohono, Gadzema and Alaska.
