The Western Cape Department of Health says national Government is considering to, in future, also vaccinate children, aged 12 to 17, against Covid-19.
The province’s Head of Health, Dr Keith Cloete says the move would help curb the continued spread of the virus.
Cloete said the more South Africans that are vaccinated, the less severe the next wave of the pandemic would be.
He says they are also considering giving people over 50, with underlying health-conditions, and health workers a booster-dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
