Government has launched a vaccination blitz in Chitungwiza after statistics revealed that the town has the lowest number of vaccinated people.
With a population of more than 400 thousand people, Chitungwiza is among areas which have a low uptake of the Covid-19 vaccination.
It is against this background that government has organised a vaccination blitz in the dormitory town.
With a population of more than 400 thousand people Chitungwiza has a total of 19 thousand people fully vaccinated. It does not make sense considering that a fourth wave is imminent. People here are very ignorant and complacent hence the door to door campaign, said the Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care Dr John Mangwiro
The town’s Director of Health and Environmental Services Dr Tonderai Kasu spoke on the need for residents to embrace the blitz to save lives.
We are calling on all residents who have not been vaccinated to come in their numbers. It is important that we work together with the community to ensure everyone is vaccinated and safe.
The three-week long vaccination blitz will see mobile clinics being set up to ensure no one is left behind.
