Makhuduthamaga vaccine-roll out program postponed indefinitely

JANE FURSE – Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality has postponed its vaccine roll-out program which was scheduled for Saturday, 31 July at the Jane Furse Plaza.

The local municipality mayor, Minah Bahula, was expected to conduct the vaccine roll-out monitoring at the plaza.

In a statement released on Friday, 30 July, the local municipality said the Department of Health’s COVID-19 vaccine roll-out program drive, for people aged 35 and above, scheduled for last Saturday was postponed indefinitely.

The municipality said that it would communicate a new date and logistics as soon as they became available.

Ahead of the planned vaccination roll-out, Mayor Bahula encouraged residents to continue to take the vaccination seriously as people would not only be saving themselves but a larger part of the community would be protected.

“People will not only be saving themselves but a larger part of the community will be protected. Our people should be cognizant of the purpose and intentions of the vaccine drive and ignore the misinformation and fake news doing rounds on our social media and elsewhere,” said Bahula.

During the last virtual meeting of the Sekhukhune COVID-19 District Command Council (DCC), concerns were raised about the large number of members of the community attending funerals.

The DCC discouraged the large numbers at funerals and advised people to stick to government regulations with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
