The Western Cape Government has revised its target number of Covid-19 vaccines administered every week.

This is due to the current vaccine short fall.

The province receives Pfizer doses from the national government every week.

This target was lowered from 120 000 to 70,000 doses.

Last week Thursday, the 10th of June the province received fewer vaccines than normal.

A total of just over 49,000 shots will be utilised across the province this week.

Head of Health, Dr Keith Cloete, says the supply is tight, and they must ensure fair distribution.

“We have the supply, but now we only have enough dozes to do a certain number of vaccinations.  We have the capacity to do much more, but we have a supply to only do so much. What we must do now is to make sure that we have a fair distribution of that supply to people”.
