More than 1 600 people in the Cape Winelands prioritised their health this past weekend by visiting Covid-19 vaccination sites during the Vooma Weekend.

Rainy weather did not keep people from the six vaccination sites that were opened on 2 October.

According to Sandra Maritz, Communications Officer for the Western Cape Health Department’s Cape Winelands’ District, altogether 264 people were vaccinated in the Breede Valley, in Drakenstein (720), Langeberg (336), Stellenbosch (150) and 221 in the Witzenberg, bringing the Vooma Weekend total for the district to 1 691.

This brings the total number of people vaccinated in the Cape Winelands to 365 391.

In De Doorns Seithati Theni (24) was one of the first to queue at the community hall for her injection. She was there at 06:00 to make sure she would be one of the first vaccinated. The Vooma Weekend was a special opportunity for Morris Matyeni (75) and his 18-year-old granddaughter, Lelona, who had come to the Happy Valley Community Hall on Saturday to get their second doses of the Pfizer vaccine. They have not had Covid-19, but are not willing to risk getting very ill, so Saturday was vaccination day for them.

Maritz said the department was thankful to the public for using this opportunity, and thanks to health-care staff and others who made it possible to boost vaccination in the district.
