In conjunction with Ministry of Health and Child Care, Masvingo City Health facilities will be conducting Polio vaccination to all children aged 0 – 59 months. Oral Polio will be given at all health facilities strategic points like Rank, Garikai Market (Chitima), Flea Market, Pre- schools, churches and street vaccination.
This is a response to outbreaks which have been experienced in our neighboring countries such as Zambia and Malawi. Therefore, as a country we are not spared due to high mobility of our people. Poliomyelitis 70% can be asymptomatic but still can spread the virus.
May you please cooperate and assist village health workers who will be conducting door collection of data to come up with the correct number of children we have so that adequate resources will be allocated.
