Premier Alan Winde says that slightly more than 30% of Western Cape pensioners still need to get vaccinated.

During his weekly digicon, Winde again urged residents older than 60 to register and report for their Covid-19 vaccination as soon as possible.

To date, more than 60% of Western Cape residents, older than 60, had been fully vaccinated.

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.

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.
