There are reports that only state institutions will vaccinate against Covid-19 and that private sector hospitals, which will assist in the programme, are refusing to give the Sinopharm shot. Executive Director in the Ministry of Health and Social Services Ben Nangombe explained that lady Pohamba, Rhino Park, cottage Hospital and Welvitschia are some of the private hospitals that are administering the Sinopharm vaccine. Nangobe did however expand that the private hospitals have expressed their concern regarding the Chinese produced Sinopharm vaccine but with respect to other vaccines globally, that have been green-lit by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the private health care providers are ready to inoculate.
