Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize says even though the number of people, who registered for their Covid-19 vaccination is still very low, everyone who wants to receive a vaccination, will receive their injection.
Mkhize was answering questions in Parliament last week and says though people can use the EVDS-system to register for their injection, the system actually serves to help the Department keep track of how many people have actually been vaccinated.
He urges people who qualify to be vaccinated – under phase 2 of the vaccination strategy – to continue registering for their jab.
The Minister of Health @DrZweliMkhize says that it gives him a great pleasure to announce that the first batch of Pfizer vaccines
(325 260 doses) will land at OR Tambo International Airport on Sunday 2 May 2021 at 23.45 CAT #vaccinerollout pic.twitter.com/Ypx8e6KgH4
