More than 110-thousand Western Cape residents – aged over 60 – have already been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Premier Alan Winde says there has been a marked increase in the number of people, in this age group, who have registered and reported for their vaccination.

He says more than 20-thousand pensioners and employees in old-age homes and care-centres have also been vaccinated.

The Western Cape has now expanded its Covid-19 vaccination programme to rural areas.

Premier Alan Winde says the province would continually increase the number of vaccination-centres to ensure that the vaccine becomes more accessible to residents.

He visited Malmesbury yesterday, and says efforts are being made to notify residents of their vaccination date, long before their injections are due.

Winde says, in time, the distance between residents and their nearest vaccination centre would gradually decrease.

He called on Government to reopen registrations on the country’s EVDS-system, to allow people between 50 and 59, to now already register for their covid-19 vaccine.

He says this would significantly help stream-line the country’s vaccination drive.

If you are over 60, you can register for your vaccination here.
