Health MEC Phophi Ramathuba said the vaccination of teachers had been running smoothly despite minor glitches, but she said they were unable to immunise teachers coming from other countries.

“The EVDS, because of their ID numbers, it’s rejecting them, and we are not able to vaccinate them,” she said.

She also said they had also approached the national Department of Health.

“We have requested the national department to assess the outcomes of those who are foreign nationals,” Ramathuba said.

She said they would communicate how the remaining 7,000 vaccines would be rolled out soon.
