Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Monica Mutsvangwa today received her Sinopharm vaccine, making a clear statement on International Women’s day.

She was given her shot at Wilkins Infectious Hospital in Harare.

Speaking after getting her first of two doses, separated by four weeks, Minister Mutsvangwa urged women to embrace the vaccine program.

“It is my way of commemorating International Women’s Day, as well as encouraging women to take the vaccine,” said Hon. Mutsvangwa.

She saluted all women involved in national development in their various capacities.

Minister Mutsvangwa joins senior Government officials including Vice President (Rtd) General Constantino Chiwenga who took their Sinopharm jabs publicly.

Her clarion call to women -who make the majority of frontline workers-, on vaccination, is in sync with what global epidemiology experts saying

World Health Organisation Regional Chief Hans Kluge said; “Seven out of 10 global health workers are female.”

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister of Youth, Sports, Arts and Recreation Tino Machakaire in his key note address at the International Women’s Day celebrations in Harare said communities should accord women respect for their work.

“As we interact here today let us all be cognizant of the role which women play in upbringing and molding families and communities,” said Machakaire.
