Zimbabwe May Consider Mandatory Vaccination - Mnangagwa

Zimbabwe May Consider Mandatory Vaccination - Mnangagwa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has warned members of the public that if vaccine uptake remains low, the Government will be left with no option but to make vaccination against COVID-19 mandatory.

Mnangagwa made the remarks on Saturday in Uzumba where he attended the memorial of the late former prisons boss Paradzai Zimondi.

Posting on Twitter this Saturday, presidential spokesperson George Charamba said the Government is targetting universal vaccination, not the initial target of attaining herd immunity. Wrote Charamba:

The President urged all Zimbabweans to step forward for anti-COVID-19 jabs which the Government is administering free of charge.

He warned that if Government realised that not many people were coming forward for voluntary vaccination, Govt might have to consider mandatory vaccination in order to save lives.

Zimbabwe’s goal was universal vaccination and not the initial herd immunity targeting jabs for 60% of the population.

Zimondi, whose Chimurenga name was Tonderai Nyika, alongside cabinet ministers Perrance Shiri and Joel Biggie Matiza succumbed to COVID-19 and the three were buried on the same day at the National Heroes Acre.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recently warned against mandatory vaccinations unless all other options have been exhausted.

Ndinodao kunzwisisa kuti pane imwe religion here inotaura about the mark of the beast kunze kweChristian faith?
It seems most people including those who are not Christians are claiming they don't want vaccine because it's the 666 mark. Mukuzvitorepi musingatendi muna Jesu Kristu-Alpha naOmega weBhaibheri.
Tikabvisa kubaiwa vaccine kwacho, kararamiro kenyu kari kuenderana here nehupenyu hunodikanwa naJehovah wacho or same team henyu naBeast ane mark yamuri kuti hamusi kuda😷🤕🤧🤒🤭

How can you claim to have won elections but at the same time you can't persuade people to get vaccinated? Is this not enough evidence to prove they stole the Presidency? To hell with vaccine mandates government only need to provide proper vaccine education and lift their nonsensical embargo on British and American vaccines.

Basa re vaccine rinofanirwa kuva rekudzivirira kubata utachiona kune anenge aribaiwa chekutanga uye kuzoita kuti anenge aribaiwa naro asatapurire vamwe hutachiona (due to a lower viral load) ndokunge vaccine racho ratadza kudzivirira zvizere kubatwa ne hutachiona (failure to prevent infection and reinfections). Virology studies enlighten us to the fact that vaccination with vaccines that have suspect or weak efficacies, in itself, leads to prompt and multiple mutations of said viruses as they register threats posed to them by those relatively ineffective vaccines. In such a scenario, it is not uncommon to discover that viruses mutate less in situations where they do not feel threatened. Semuenzaniso, zvakafanana nekuti nyoka ikavhundutsirwa uye kurohwa ne kashamhu ino feeler threatened zvakanyanya kupfuura inenge isina kuvhundutsirwa kana kushapurwa. Nyika ye Israel yakaita vaccinate more than 80 percent ye total population yavo asi delta struck them zvakaipisisa. Human beings are rational. They can never refuse to get something that they are certain would be beneficial to them. Those who are reluctant to get these first generation stuff vari kutyiswa nema alleged side effects from taking these first generation (G1) vaccines. According to their manufacturers, these G1 vaccines are not able to stop those admistered with them from getting infected. Shouldn't African scientists be getting enhanced funding to conduct extensive researches nemari iri kutengeswa some of these G1 vaccines by African countries? Maonero angu ndeekuti it's best to prayerfully practise social distancing pese patinogona napo, topfeka zvivhara mhino nemiromo kuitira kudambura distance inozoita droplets airborne uye kushambidzika (sanitizing our hands) nekusabata maziso nemhino.

Yah true all people can spread the virus but the unvaccinated are more probable to spread it.and also the virus is mutating in the unvaccinated.

They are not the only ones my guy. You can still get COVID, transmit it to other people and die even if you are vaccinated
