According to health.gov our countries first priority is frontline workers, “Protecting our healthcare workers is an urgent priority.Phase 1 of the vaccine programme is focused on healthcare workers. This is the first step in rolling out a comprehensive vaccine distribution strategy for the nation. Healthcare workers are the frontline of the country’s COVID-19 response and are 3-4 times more likely to contract COVID-19 than the general population.”

Now we have moved onto the next phase where those who are 60 years and older can volunteer to be vaccinated. Health Minister Dr. Zweli Mkhize urged South African’s to register for the vaccine for this next phase.

How is the Sisonke vaccine rollout going to work?

According to health.gov: “The South African government has secured half a million doses of the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson,( although currently suspended) enough to vaccinate half a million health workers. The first batch of 80,000 doses arrived on the 16th of February and further deliveries will follow every two weeks. Vaccines will be available at 17 hospitals throughout the country where teams of researchers and vaccinators will work together to deliver the vaccine to health workers up to 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. Research staff will be responsible for ensuring the cold chain and drawing up the correct amount of vaccine. Vaccinators will complete assessment checks, administer the vaccine and monitor you for a few minutes.”
