Mwonzora Gets Second Vaccine Dose, Warns “Anti Vaxxers”

MDC-T Leader, Douglas Mwonzora Wednesday got his first jab of the Sinopharm vaccine in Harare while warning the anti-vaccine crusade to desist from discouraging others from getting their vaccines.

Posting on his Twitter page, Mwonzora said it is only responsible for people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“We thank Zimbabweans for heeding our call to get vaccinated for Covid 19. Witnessed hundreds of Zimbabweans today throng the Wilkins Hospital to get their vaccines. This is the responsible thing to do. I also took my second dose of the vaccine,” he posted.

Earlier yesterday, the seasoned politician posted a video warning those who are against the vaccine saying they are acting irresponsibly

“It is therefore irresponsible to incite our people against vaccination. The COVID-19 pandemic is a national emergency and therefore the fight against this pandemic must completely be depoliticized.

“With unity, with discipline and responsibility, we can defeat this devil, victory is certain,” Mwonzora said.

There have been concerns about Zimbabwe’s uptake of the COVID-19 with only less than 50 000 people having been vaccinated since the country launched the first phase of the vaccination process.

Today, President Emmerson Mnangagwa will launch the second phase in Victoria Falls where he will get his first jab of the Sinovac vaccine together with other POLAD members and their spouses.
