Why are certain groups of people being prioritised for vaccination?
Modified on: Tue, 7 Nov, 2023 at 8:07 PM
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that those most at risk of severe illness, death and exposure to COVID-19 get vaccinated first. This included frontline health workers (especially those providing COVID-19 patient care) and older people. However, vaccination is now available for everyone over the age of 12 in South Africa, so there is no need to wait any longer. Go and get vaccinated at a site near you!
