The Western Cape believes it could procure its own COVID-19 vaccines by August. The province has set aside R75-million from its health budget for its ambitious plan to bolster the vaccine rollout in the province.
Infections among health workers are at an all-time low and could be an early sign of the impact of the vaccination programme.
About 60-percent of healthcare workers in the Western Cape have received a jab against COVID-19. And with only 16 active cases, the effects may already be showing.
The province is expecting another 36,000 vaccine doses to arrive this weekend. It will allow for two-thirds of the province’s health workers to be vaccinated.
