The Department of Basic Education released a statement that revealed how many school staff were vaccinated in two days.

On Wednesday, the Department of Health reported that 49 776 educators and school staff received the COVID-19 vaccine and on the second day 55 444 people were vaccinated.

Yesterday, Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, and Education MEC Polly Boshielo launched the vaccination programme in the province at Pietersburg Hospital. Which is why the Health Department expects an increase in the number of people who will be vaccinated.

Currently, KwaZulu-Natal is leading with 32,1% of their target population vaccinated. The Eastern Cape vaccinated 21%, Free State registered 21,9%, Mpumalanga recorded 26%, North West vaccinated 22%, Northern Cape recorded 12%, and Gauteng registered 11% on Thursday. 

The Health Department stated that these patterns mirror the trends in the general population. 

The basic education department identified that 582 000 educators and school staff are expected to be vaccinated by 8 July 2021. 

The Health Department announced that more Johnson & Johnson vaccines have arrived in South Africa. They have assured the education department that there will be enough vaccines for everyone who indicated that they would like to be vaccinated. 

All educators and staff are urged to follow the schedule in each district to ensure a smooth distribution of the vaccination programme.

On Thursday, the leaders of all five teacher unions in the sector were vaccinated in Atteridgeville. The chief executives of entities also received their vaccinations.
