The Limpopo Department of Health has announced that they are working tirelessly to bring back the children’s vaccines which was stopped due to the shortage in some of the healthcare facilities.
Department Spokeperson Neil Shikwambana said the shortage was caused by the fact that suppliers have been struggling to access the vaccines in the market due to COVID-19 inconveniences.
“The department has managed to secure a supply of these vaccines and they are expected to be available at facilities by the end of this week.” He assured the people of Limpopo.
Limpopo Health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba says the department will embark on a catch up program to address the backlogs in vaccination of children who have missed their dose due to shortage in facilities.
“We would like to genuinely apologise for this inconvenience. We want to reassure our communities that all children who missed their dosages will receive them during our catch up program, ” said MEC Ramathuba.
