Health workers’ unions Nehawu hoped the government would take it into its confidence on its ambitious plans to vaccinate 67% of South African citizens by the end of the year.
The union has slammed Health Minister Zweli Mkhize’s vaccine roll-out plan, saying it lacked details and was very ambiguous.
It also criticized the government’s attempts so far to acquire a vaccine, saying the state was caught napping while the world faced a pandemic that had killed millions of people.
The union’s Zola Saphetha called on Mkhize to prioritize frontline workers urgently, as they were more at risk of contracting COVID-19.
“We are in trouble. So, the sooner we meet, the better.”
The union said it would also work to ensure the working class and the poor were prioritized for the distribution of the vaccine when it became available.
