#LetsDoThis: Western Cape launches non-Metro vaccination drive with Tannie Evita

Today, I had the great pleasure of launching the province’s non-Metro vaccination drive with Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout.

Tannie Evita, who is a resident in the West Coast District of the Western Cape, received her vaccination today at the Wesbank Community Hall in Malmesbury, helping to send an important message to residents across the province that the vaccine is safe and that it offers excellent protection against severe COVID-19 related illness and death.
