Dhlomo, who was a part of the social team of ministers answering questions within the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) on Tuesday, stated they need to ramp up the vaccination program.

He said up to now about 25 million vaccine doses were administered. This translates to 41% of the population who've been vaccinated.

The government had previously said it wanted to vaccinate 70% of the population by the end of the year. He said the issue of mandatory vaccination was on the cards.

Deputy Health Minister Dr. Sibongiseni Dhlomo says the combat towards the brand new variation Omicron continues and that government is searching into mandatory vaccination.

This comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced at the weekend that a task team had been set up to look at mandatory vaccination. With pandemic that have since broke last year, it will only remain to be seen how long we have to live with this variant.
