The Western Cape Education Department encouraged matriculants, over the age of 18, to get their Covid-19 vaccination as soon as possible.
The WCED says if pupils get their injection this week still they would have two weeks to build up their immunity before the exams kick off.
This year’s matric examinations will start on 27 October 2021.
Education MEC, Debbie Schäfer says it’s important that Grade 12s keep themselves safe as they near the examinations.
