The vaccine rollout programme for police officers kicked off on July 5 and has exceeded the 20,000 mark.
According to police spokesperson Athlenda Mathe, 23,375 police officers and personnel, including cleaners and security staff, have been vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in eight provinces.
SABC News reported that Mathe said because of the unrest in KwaZulu-Natal, the vaccine rollout for police personnel in the province has been delayed.
“The situation in KwaZulu-Natal demanded the immediate response and maximum mobilization of members and resources, hence the delay in the rollout of the vaccination programme,” said Mathe.
Reacting to the video, many laughed at the officer, while others said they could relate.
Here is a snapshot of some of the reactions:
I can inject with no ease. I operate with my eyes closed. Once anyone has to inject me with anything, this is exactly the scene. Sometimes even worse. I have the worst fear for needles. https://t.co/uueNadCKJz

I sympathise with this; I’m deathly-afraid of needles. I’ve mentioned it before that I needed to be held down everytime I donated blood.
I’m still getting the vaccine though 💅 https://t.co/fe69DCtTSI
