Covid-19 vaccinations open for 12-17 year- olds from 20 October

Johannesburg- Minister of Health Joe Phaahla says vaccination sites are ready to administer vaccines to 12-17-year-old children.

“Vaccination remains voluntary and we are not considering a mandate at this stage,” said Joe Phaahla.

“We encourage people to vaccinate to protect themselves and their families.”

Children between 12-17 can go to any vaccination site to get vaccinated without their parent’s consent.
