By: Andzani Hlongwane

The Limpopo Provincial Government has received their first seven thousand one hundred and sixty Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine doses. MEC for Health Department Dr Phophi Ramathoba was amongst those that got vaccinated at the Mankweng Hospital outside Polokwane.

 

 

All health front liners that wish to be inoculated will have to do online registration which will be easier to manage the thirty nine identified vaccine sites.

“We are currently working with our IT department to roll out the vaccine within our internal stakeholders which is easy to work with because they are already on persal system, we do acknowledge that once we deal with the community at large we will encounter problems but we are trying to plan to avoid such”.

“I am vaccinated today because I want people of Limpopo to see that we have faith and trust in what will be administered to them, this vaccine will save a lot of lives, we have already lost many lives due to Covid-19 Pandemic”. Dr Ramathuba

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine has been tested in a large number of 44 000 people across the continent of which 700 of them were South Africans and provides 57% protection  against the new variant of Covid-19.
