Demand for Covid-19 Jabs Overwhelms Gweru Nurses

1 Mins read

GWERU City Council has 31 vacant positions for nurses at its clinics, a development that has contributed to delays in the mass vaccination drive in the Midlands Capital.

Council clinics serve about 50 people a day and in some cases, those wanting to be inoculated are being turned away as the available nurses are being overwhelmed.

The local authority runs eight clinics which are Senga, Mkoba Polyclinic, Mkoba 1, Totonga, Child Welfare, Mtapa Clinic, Ivene and New Life Centre.

In an interview, GCC spokesperson Ms Vimbai Chingwaramusee said since June last year, council has lost 14 nurses due to resignations, retirements and death.
