Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) Minister, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, has invited the public to comment on the draft regulations of the COVID-19 Vaccine Injury No-Fault Compensation Scheme.

Members of the public are urged to access these draft regulations and send comments by 19 April 2021 to NFCcomments@health.gov.za

The scheme is an essential part of the COVID-19 vaccination rollout. According to the draft amendment, the Health Minister, in consultation with the Finance Minister, “must designate the account for the Fund and the institution that is responsible for the financial management of the Fund”.

The Fund consists of funds appropriated by an Act of Parliament to the vote of Health or from contingencies, in terms of appropriation legislation or the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), as well as funds accruing from any other source.
