By Lukhangele Mayende

The vaccination of senior citizens yields positive results in the province with a number of old pensioners seen adhering to the call to get vaccinated.

Yesterday [May 17] the MEC of the health department in the Eastern Cape, Nomakhosazana Meth, visited the Stutterheim Hospital and Amatola Haven Old Age Home as part of monitoring endeavours to make sure there are no glitches in the registration and vaccination of the senior citizens in the Province.

MEC Meth said she is very much pleased about the dedication and commitment of front line healthcare workers of the two facilities they went to.

“Even in instance where there were senior citizens who arrived and yet they were not registered, they were not turned back, they were instantly registered but had to wait for a period not exceeding 20 minutes, then proceed to vaccinate,” said Meth.

The MEC has called on all citizens not to stop being responsible and keep safe at all times.

“Even after vaccination, we plead with our people to continue adhering to regulations by practising social distancing, regular washing of hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer and wearing of masks whenever in public,” she said.
