Premier Alan Winde says the province is expecting to receive around 260-thousand doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine which, when it arrives, will be distributed immediately to qualifying residents.

He says approval is currently still being awaited from the US FDA on if the doses are safe for use here in South Africa.

Winde says Western Cape facilities and healthcare workers are ready to start administering the doses, should it arrive in the province.

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.

National Government says it is encouraged by the more than 2-million South Africans that have already registered for their Covid-19 vaccination.

Acting Minister in the Presidency, Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, in a post-Parliamentary briefing said this shows the commitment of citizens to help the country achieve herd-immunity.

Ntshavheni encouraged those over 60, who are eligible for their injection, and who have not yet registered, to do so as soon as they can.

The MEC for Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo says that although the province’s Covid-19 vaccination program seems to be moving at a snail’s pace, the Western Cape is actually making the best progress in vaccinating pensioners.

During the weekly digicon, Mbombo said that the province has the largest number of retirement resorts and old age homes, than elsewhere in South Africa, and therefore there are more people, over 60, to be vaccinated.

She says the province has already, since the start of phase 2 of its vaccination program, given more than 20 thousand inhabitants their injection.
