Protests At Wilkins As Hospital Runs Out Of Covid Vaccines

HUNDREDS of Zimbabweans Wednesday protested the enduring shortages of Covid-19 vaccines that threaten to derail the country’s immunisation campaign, with authorities saying they are waiting for more doses from China.


The government wants to inoculate at least 60% of Zimbabwe’s more than 14 million people by the end of the year but has struggled to get the necessary supplies.



Claudina Maneni brought her 60-year-old mother to get her second vaccine dose Wednesday at Wilkins Hospital, Zimbabwe’s main Covid-19 vaccination centre.

The restive crowd demanded to see authorities and began to protest but dispersed upon hearing police were on their way.
