Over 48 000 School Staff Vaccinated On Day 1
Yesterday marked day one of the teacher (and school staff) vaccination rollout, after many months of demanding that teachers be prioritised. The Department is said to be satisfied with day one.
According to a preliminary report from the department of health, over 48 000 people were vaccinated as part of day one of the vaccination rollout for teachers and other school staff.
A statement put out by the department read:
The Department of Basic Education is satisfied with the first day of the vaccination programme in the basic education sector.
The 48 000 does not include Western Cape and Limpopo numbers. Western Cape will only start vaccinating on Thursday, with 30 already done for the launch, and Limpopo on Friday.
On Limpopo vaccinations, the department said, "The province will vaccinate over two weekends starting this Friday and Saturday and will then conclude next week Friday and Saturday".
Kwazulu-Natal had the most vaccinations done with Northern Cape doing the least. To improve, Northern Cape will be sending out mobile teams to smaller town.
All staff who work on public school grounds are eligible to be vaccinated as there is no age limit for who qualifies.
The Department once again urges educators and support staff to adhere to the schedules given by the district offices. Strict adherence to health and safety protocols is paramount at all vaccination sites.
For those wondering about whether there are enough vaccine doses available, the department has assured us that there are enough doses to reach their target and that additional doses will arrive to conclude the education vaccine rollout.
Due to a WhatsApp message with the above fear being spread, there was then a rush in Eastern Cape, North West and Free State.
The department will monitor the programme as it goes.
