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.
