“I want to thank President Mnangagwa for ensuring that Zimbabwe is among the first five countries to get vaccines in Africa. I and my husband got vaccinated two weeks ago and we are feeling good. Many more people who got vaccinated have not experienced side effects. The Network Times did its research and published that Sinopharm vaccine from China is the best. So, when given a chance to get vaccinated we should not think twice. We should be at the forefront telling our people to get vaccinated,” said the minister.
