Hlengwa, Ms MD to ask the Minister of Health
(1)Whether his department has conducted adequate research on the capacity for vaccination roll-out programmes across the Republic; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) with reference to the report provided by the Health Sciences Faculty at the University of Fort Hare, what is the capacity of his department to deliver the planned number of vaccinations in the second phase by the end of June 2021 in the Eastern Cape; (3) whether his department supports the findings made in the specified report on its lack of capacity for the vaccination roll-out; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) what plans and teaching programmes does his department have in place to encourage South Africans to register for vaccinations, especially for the current cohort receiving vaccines?
I am not able to respond to this Question as I am still waiting for the Honourable Member to share the report that the Honourable Member is referring to. Once the Honourable member has furnished me with the report, that would enable me to reply fully to the information requested by the question.
