DA in the Western Cape calls for urgent clarity on communicating vaccine safety

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Western Cape has called on national government to urgently communicate COVID-19 vaccine safety to residents.

The party wants clarity, as South Africa prepares for the first batch that is expected to arrive early February.

One million doses will reach the country by the first week of February.

"Nothing withholds government from embarking on a mass campaign to distribute factual information around the particulars of a safe vaccination process in the interests of residents. National government has dragged its feet in providing clarity on the COVID-19 process when it comes to payment, process and planning," said the party's health spokesperson, Wendy Philander.

Philander says she will write to the Western Cape’s Health MEC, Dr. Nomafrench Mbombo

‘’I will however, write to the provincial Minister of Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, to establish how and when the provincial department will roll-out its campaign to keep residents informed on the particulars of a safe Covid-19 vaccination process.’’
