Zimbabwe has opened more vaccination centers in its capital, Harare, with the aim of increasing vaccinations against the pandemic.
The 24 centers comprising hospitals, polyclinics and satellite clinics have been designated as vaccination centers in the city of about 1.5 million people, Harare City Council said in a statement on Sunday.
Vaccination is being rolled out during this Easter holiday period in hopes of attracting more people.
The government aims to vaccinate 10 million of the country’s 16 million people to obtain collective immunity.
A total of 111,588 people in Zimbabwe have so far been vaccinated with Chinese vaccines since the national immunization program began on February 18, with more than 16,000 people receiving their first doses on Easter Friday alone. (Xinhua / NAN)
