According to the South African Department of Health, the vaccination rollout for children aged between 12 years old and 17 years old will start on Wednesday 20 October, the health department has also confirmed that children will only be eligible to receive one dose of the Pfizer vaccine..
"Minister of Health has announced that govt is ready to vaccinate children from 12 yrs to 17 yrs. The vaccination fir this cohort will be opened on 20 October. The vaccine MAC recommended that children should be give 1 dose of Pfizer vaccine #VaccineRollOutSA" - Department of Health.
However, South African parents are currently expressing outrage after it was reported that the government will not require consent from parents, and the children will be able to make their own decisions about getting vaccinated, and this is how some parents are responding...
"Ai, we as parents need to standup now or never"
"I don't like violence, I'm also scared of prison ...but touch my daughter without my consent you will see your mother ,I'll forget about everything for a sec,you will meet your makers ...yoh"
"Touch my child with that poison and I'll become a hitman. The evil side will come out 💯%"
"People its time we stood up as parents to voice our dissatisfaction at our Government, when it comes to alcohol kids need to be 18, when it comes to sexual consent they need to be 18. But when it comes to medical decision they can do that on their own without parents?"
"You touch my kids, I will definitely look for the person who was responsible for the injection"
