Health Minister Dr. Joe Phaahla says he is concerned about the decline in the number of Covid-19 vaccinations that are now, on a daily basis, being administered across the country.
Phaahla says during the height of the country’s vaccination campaign up to 300,000 injections were being administered on a daily basis.
The figure has now dropped to below 100,000 per day.
The Minister says it is especially young people who do not register for and go for their injections.
