It has taken South Africa more than three months to reach the 1 million mark but the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines is now picking up pace. Earlier this month, it was reported that out of the 40 million people targeted for the country to reach herd immunity, 1.2% had been fully vaccinated by 1 June. At the time, KwaZulu-Natal was leading the charge, with at least 2.3% of the province’s population having received at least one dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. On the other end of the scale, Mpumalanga had only managed to administer doses to 0.8% of its population.
While we, as a Scheme, cannot do anything about the rate at which the vaccinations are administered, we can share potentially life-saving information that can be used to decide whether or not to vaccinate.
We have created electronic posters that can printed and shared with you to use in and around your work buildings for the benefit of your colleagues and clients. If you are interested in having these sent to you, please liaise with your Key Account Consultant.
