South African vaccination expert, Professor Shabir Madhi has again reiterated calls that residents, older than 50, get their Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible.

Madhi says the vaccination rate of older residents should be increased as soon as possible, before the resurgence in infections, which is expected by December.
