Western Cape leading by example in South Africa : Here is what achieved regarding vaccination

Western Cape province in South Africa led by example in the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive .This was after it was revealed that more than half of its adult population had received at least one dose of their Covid-19 vaccinations .

These revelations were reportedly made by the Western Cape Health Department on Tuesday .Even though the department was pleased with the efforts so far , it revealed that it was far from achieving the targetted 70 % vaccination of the population by the end of 2021 .This comes as the province entered its era of the fourth wave .

The department added that as the new Omicron variant was spreading rapidly , it was important for as many people as possible to get vaccinated .This will help reduce possible severe illnesses and even fatalities .A call was therefore made by the department to those who are not yet vaccinated to reconsider their decisions and get vaccinated .

Below are the percentages of of the adult population that have been vaccinated so far :
