Durban: The SAPS Covid-19 vaccination drive kicked off in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday morning.
A week ago the vaccine roll-out for SAPS in KwaZulu Natal was halted following days of civil unrest.
The situation in KZN demanded the immediate response and maximum mobilisation of members and resources, hence the delay in the roll out of the vaccination programme, said national police spokesperson Colonel Athlenda Mathe.
On Tuesday, police spokesperson Brigadier Jay Naicker said the drive was launched at the Durban Central SAPS and led by Deputy Provincial Commissioner Major General Phindile Radebe.
“The launch in Durban will see 500 police officers receiving their vaccination in the first day.
