Health Minister Zweli Mkhize says they are concerned about the manipulation of the COVID-19 vaccination rollout for health workers.

Mkhize had been addressing MP’s in the National Assembly, on the Coronavirus vaccine rollout progress.

So far, more than 100 000 healthcare workers have so far been vaccinated, meanwhile, the country aims to vaccinate around 1.1 million people by the end of March as it ramps up its immunisation programme.

Experts had estimated that to ensure population herd immunity, at least 40 million people needed to be vaccinated.

Mkhize says no one should swindle their way onto the vaccine list before their turn arrives.

The Minister also urged citizens to continue following all COVID-19 protocols especial with the Easter weekend approaching.

Easter time is typically a period of family gatherings, holiday breaks, and increased alcohol consumption, all of which have been closely associated with rising numbers of Covid-19 cases.

Mkhize says he’s concerned about the possibility of a third wave or resurgence after these holidays.
