DEPUTY Minister in The Presidency Thembi Siweya undertook a frontline monitoring visit to the Covid-19 vaccination sites in the North West.

Together with Health MEC Madoda Sambatha, Siweya visited the vaccination site at Klerksdorp Hospital on Tuesday to assess progress of the implementation of the vaccine rollout programme.

Her visit was also preceded by an assessment of compliance to health protocols and Covid-19 regulations.

Earlier on, the deputy minister went to J.S. Masisi Primary where frontline monitoring of the school was told that it is to be made part of the government-wide back-to-school campaign. The campaign was aimed at highlighting the importance of education and mobilising society to play a role in supporting teaching and learning.

Siweya also advised people that even if they were already vaccinated, they still needed to comply by wearing masks, keeping social distance and sanitising.

Also present were health provincial district directors, district hospital CEOs, mayors and Traditional Healers Association provincial chairman Kenneth Mogweng.

Siweya said next on her visit list was the Eastern Cape.
