Premier Winde calls on residents to make use of their vaccine opportunity

 

I call on residents to make use of their vaccine opportunity and play their part in saving lives and livelihoods.

Of those aged 18 years and older, 32.3% of those residing in the Western Cape have already received at least 1 dose of their COVID-19 vaccine. This includes:

  • Those 60 years and older, of which 65.5% have already received their first dose and 55.1% are already fully vaccinated.
  • Those between 50-59 years, of which 49.2% have already received their first dose and 33.2% are already fully vaccinated.
  • Those between 35-49 years, of which 34% have already received their first dose and 14.9% are already fully vaccinated.
  • Those between 18-34 years, of which 13.9% have already received their first dose and 5.4% are already fully vaccinated.

We remain concerned about the lower vaccine uptake among those in the 50-59 age group and encourage those in this age group to make use of their vaccine opportunity. Please do not wait for your appointment and walk into vaccine sites, where you will be prioritised.

Those aged 50 years and older remain at the highest risk of serious illness and death, which is why we must ensure that no person in this age group is left behind and that we achieve our targets. Vaccines are highly effective in preventing serious illness and death and are safe use.

The time has come for each of us to play our part so that we can protect ourselves and those around us while ensuring that we move forward and open up our economy.
