Children’s Vaccines to be Restored in Clinics

POLOKWANE-The Limpopo Department of Health has acknowledged the shortage of children’s vaccines in the health care facilities across the province. In a statement released by the department on January 25, the shortage was caused by the huge demand and the supplier being unable to access their regular supply in the market, due to COVID-19 inconsistencies.
The department has, however, managed to secure a supply and believes they will be readily available to health care facilities by the end of the week. The MEC of health in the province Phophi Ramathuba was put on record stating that, the department will embark on a catch-up program.
The main aim of the program will be to address the backlogs in vaccination of children who missed their dose due to this problem. “We would like to apologize profusely for the inconvenience this problem has caused. Moreover, we want to reassure our people that all children who missed their dosages will receive them in out catch up program” concluded the MEC
