The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc in South Africa and globally, millions are being infected and dying. Vaccinating a significant part of the population is the only realistic way to defeat the pandemic. Achieving this will require international co-operation and solidarity, while unity in action across all sectors of our society is now urgent.
We need vigilance and solidarity to slow the rate of infection and to ensure that health facilities are not overwhelmed. With this objective in mind, People's Health Movement South Africa hosted this workshop to members of the Manenberg Health Committee to empower our community with the knowledge of the vaccine. In the workshop, many aspects of a vaccine in general were covered.
