PLHIVs should be included in COVID-19 vaccination priority, say advocates

The Department of Health considers PLHIVs under “persons with comorbidities”; meaning they should be among priority people for COVID-19 vaccination. But PLHIVs still have issues related to this – e.g. absence of clear guidelines from DOH re PLHIV vaccination; stopping of service delivery of many HIV treatment facilities; and the general lack of knowledge or even awareness of PLHIVs on this issue.
