JOHANNESBURG - The Health Department is on a mission to vaccinate as many people as possible as a possible third wave of the coronavirus looms in South Africa.

Its electronic vaccination data system went live on Friday, 16 April, allowing elderly South Africans to register to get their COVID-19 vaccine when the second phase of the rollout programme starts.

Phase two is said to commence from mid-May to the end of October.

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize said that if the government received the number of vaccines committed to by the manufacturers, 46.2 million South Africans would be inoculated by March 2022.

This excluded the 500,000 people that would be vaccinated under the Sisonke protocol.

The minister was hopeful that a further 1.2 million doses would arrive this quarter as promised by the Covax facility.
