Vaccination Rollout

 

The following figures represent the tally as at 00.01, 1 June 2021:

 

The total vaccinated under the Sisonke Programme is 479 768.

 

The total vaccinated under Phase Two with the first dose of Pfizer vaccine is 565 336

 

Therefore, today it is my pleasure to announce that we have breached the million mark and have vac- cinated 1 045 104 individuals. I wish to thank all the those involved in the vaccination campaign, from the Director General of Health to each and every vaccinator continuing to battle it out for the nation in the frontline. We will continue to ramp up daily vaccinations, working together with the private sector, towards attaining the targets we have committed to as government.
