Western Cape Education MEC, Debbie Schafer, innoculated

The Western Cape had vaccinated 45 579 education sector staff members, this translates to 83% of allocated vaccines for the province

The Department of Basic Education said while they initially targeted 582,000 people in the sector, they had now added over 789 000 staff including food handlers, janitors, and support staff from independent schools and ECD centres on the EVDS system.

Meanwhile, Education MEC, Debbie Schafer received the jab on Monday at the Parc du Cap vaccination site at Metropolitan Health in Bellville.

‘’I received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as part of the education sector rollout, now that my age group is eligible. The process was very efficient, and the health workers were extremely professional and friendly. I encourage each and every resident of the Western Cape to register for their vaccine once they are able to do so.  ‘’

Schafer urged those who have not gotten the jab to do so.

‘’I commend all the staff of our sector who have chosen to receive the vaccine. Despite all the fake news being circulated, you have chosen to take an important step in getting our schools, and our society, back to normal. You are now ambassadors for this vital tool in the fight against Covid-19, and for the education sector, against the extreme learning losses our children are suffering as a result of the pandemic.’’
