Vooma Vaccination Weekend: Where South Africans can get vaxxed
Share this article:
Cape Town – South Africans and those living in the country have no excuse to not be vaccinated as we can get vaccinated in a nationwide mass vaccination drive hosted by government and civil society.
Vooma Vaccination Weekends aim to mobilise people living in South Africa to get vaccinated as a means to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
This weekend (October 1 - 3) will be the first Vooma Vaccination Weekend in a series of outreaches under this banner.
Vaccines are safe and easy to receive. It is also worth noting that they are free of charge. Not only will it give a peace of mind to yourself, but it will protect people against serious illness, hospitalisation and death.
When the majority of people in the country are vaccinated, the nation will experience a greater sense of freedom and safety as South Africa would then get herd immunity.
During the launch of the Vooma Vaccination Weekend in Katlehong, President Cyril Ramaphosa highlighted the importance of the vaccines.
“We always say, when you are vaccinated, yes, it doesn’t mean you wont’ get Covid, but the Covid won’t lead to your hospitalisation and most probably won’t lead to your death.
“Vaccination is our defence. Please do not listen to those who are saying don’t vaccinate if you are a young woman and won’t get kids. That is absolute nonsense.”
