9 November 2021
All hands are on deck to get as many people as possible vaccinated before the start of the festive season. If the majority of us are vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines by December, we will have a much safer summer. Vaccination is the best way of saving ourselves from illness, death and ongoing disruptions of our lives and work. Vaccination teams in the Garden Route District has to date administered 326 063 vaccinations.
“We have a long way to go to reach our two targets, i.e. fully vaccinating 85% of those above the age of 50 years and 65% or the total Garden Route population between the ages 18 and 49 with at least one dose. We stand at 63% and 38% respectively”, said District Director Mr Zee Brickles.
