More will be done in the coming weeks, to see that the country’s most vulnerable get access to Covid-19 vaccines as soon as possible.

This, according to the Deputy-director General at the Department of Health, Dr Nicholas Crisp. Crisp says even though more than 7-million people have already been vaccinated, there are still too many people who could not yet access healthcare facilities to get their injection.

He says people in the 50 and 60+ age groups would also be prioritized for their vaccine.

The Health Department will, this week, aim to vaccinate at least 300-thousand people per day.

This, according to the acting Minister of Health, Mmamoloko Kubayi.

Kubayi says after the vaccine-constraints experienced last week, the country will this week have access to millions of doses of vaccines, delivered by Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.

She says vaccine-producers have also been urged to keep to their supply-deadlines, saying that any delays severely impacts the country’s vaccination ability.
