Written by on

As the country continues to register high numbers of COVID19 and the death toll soars past 1 800, the Task team has encouraged the public that eligible people take the covid-19 vaccination.Scientific advisor of the covid-19 task force team Dr Mogomotsi Matshaba says, one can do so just after a 10 day recovery period post covid-19, unlike what was the case in the past. Matshaba says with previous variants, they had advised that people wait for 3 months before getting vaccinated however with the delta variant, it is not necessary to wait.

He further explained that the COVID 19 vaccines have some non harmful elements of the virus, that would not turn into an infection. He said the covid 19 symptoms people have after taking the vaccine are their the body’s way of fighting infections.At least 8.9% of people aged 18 years and above have been fully vaccinated.
