The bid to get South Africans vaccinated is currently pressuring government and other business owners. In a bid to encourage citizens to get vaccinated, Funeral parlors have joined in the move.They have taken matters into their own hands.

On Tuesday, Funeral Parlour owners in Soweto, Gauteng took it upon their hands to urge South Africans to get vaccinated and reduce COVID-19 related deaths in the country. About forty hearses are reportedly currently driving in a convoy around Soweto, encouraging residents to get vaccinated.

Many people are reluctant to get the jab because of misinformation and conspiracy theories that are being spread around. The comments under the report is proof that some South Africa are totally against the vaccine. Several people think it doesn’t make sense that Funeral parlors would encourage people to stay alive when they make money from deaths. "Clowns collaborating with their puppet masters to encourage people to tamper with their own biology. It’s disgusting," a Twitter user said.

Some accused the funeral Parlour owners of being paid vaccine influencers. But the matter of the fact is that vaccinating will reduce the negative impact of Covid-19 in society, including to avoid lockdown. It is a good gesture taken by the funeral parlour owners to think about preserving lives instead of prioritizing making money. We salute them! What do you think of this move?
