Vaccination Rollout:

The total vaccinated under the Sisonke Programme is 479 768. These vaccinations were with the one- dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine and are therefore completed vaccinations. As we indicated, the teams undertook data verification processes over the weekend in preparation for the finalization of a public facing live dashboard. The number reflected today is a result of this process, which removed duplications and vaccinations assigned incorrectly to Sisonke.

The total vaccinated in Phase Two as at midnight today is 348 436. These vaccinations were with the first dose of Pfizer vaccine.

Total individuals vaccinated; Sisonke and Pfizer first dose is 828 204.
