Motsepe, Ms CCS to ask the Minister of Health

Whether, taking into account the slow pace of COVID-19 vaccination, he has revised his vaccination targets for the nation; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the new dates by which he intends to have vaccinated enough persons to protect the nation against the spread of the virus?


The targets for the vaccine roll-out as follows:


Time period

Number of vaccinations


February – May 2021

1.2 million


May – October 2021

16.6 million


November 2021 – February 2022

22.6 million

The targets remain as previously announced. The targets are linked to the vaccine supply pipeline, and may need to be revised if vaccine manufacturers do not supply vaccines according to the agreed timelines.
