Vaccine supply impacting our ability

27 July 2021

We have seen enormous excitement and eagerness for people to get vaccinated. We appreciate the uptake of registration and vaccination.

We have seen, as new age bands are added, that this causes excitement and increased demand for vaccination, which is a positive sign.

This week our demand for vaccination temporarily outstrips our vaccine capacity at many sites, but we want to assure everyone who has registered that they will be vaccinated in due course. 

We received 96 000 vaccines for this week for public sites, which must also include the vaccination of those coming for their second doses.

We do anticipate more vaccines being made available to provinces in order for us to vaccinate even more people and have been assured that the general supply of vaccines shows a positive increase from next week.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
