A call has been made for responsible health authorities to consider an extension of the second phase expanded Covid-19 vaccination blitz, that targeted lower age groups which ended yesterday.

Addressing members of the media during a tour organised by the Ministry of Health and Child Care, Guruve district nursing officer Kingwell Zvomuya said an extension would enable vaccination teams to reach more learners who are now stationed in various schools.

The second phase vaccination blitz targeted those aged between 12 and 15 years as the country moves to attain a 10 million herd immunity.
