Zimbabwe has so far authorized the use of four COVID-19 vaccines – China’s Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines, Russia’s Sputnik V and Covaxin from India.

The country launched the first phase of its vaccination drive on Feb. 18 targeting frontline health workers, journalists, prison officers as well as ports and immigration officials.
