Nearly 3,000 vaccines have been administered in the Western Cape so far.

The province started giving shots to health workers on Wednesday.

The vaccination process is being conducted at the Groote Schuur, Tygerberg and Khayelitsha Hospitals.

The number of inoculations being administered each day is climbing rapidly – with 932 health workers vaccinated on Sunday.

Last week, the country received the first batch of 80,000 doses of Johnson and Johnson vaccine – of which 13,160 were delivered to the Cape.

The provincial health department’s Mark van der Heever, says so far things are going smoothly.

“This vaccination programme is the biggest yet in the province and country. The Department continues to monitor the rollout process and has been addressing teething issues as they are identified, which is part of such a mass vaccination drive”
