Higher Education said:
Minister Nzimande, like all South Africans, registered through the registration portal for Covid-19 vaccination for the over 60 years age group. This is part of South Africa’s Phase 2 of its COVID-19 vaccination rollout.
The Minister himself said that the arrival of vaccines should not suggest the relaxation of COVID-19 health protocols, which includes the wearing of masks, sanitisation and physical distancing. This is especially important as South Africa heads into the third wave.
Before receiving his vaccine, Nzimande was given a brief by healthcare workers.
Nzimande, who is also the Minister of Science and Innovation, said that he and his department has been tasked with producing a vaccine that comes from South Africa and to also work on developing vaccines for other diseases.
We have identified the capacity we have to develop our own vaccine and what needs to be done, including institutions we need to work with.
The Minister continued to say that he has made Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize, aware that Universities and Colleges are able to be vaccination sites if needed.
A background in Logistics offers one the qualification to be able to oversee or organize the transportation, storage and distribution of goods within a business’ supply chain, which represents a vital part of the business’ ability to perform efficiently. For someone who has their sights set on a career in Logistics, South African private and public universities offer a great variety of qualifications within this field to choose from.
