The Cape Town International Convention Centre will open as one of three mass vaccination sites in the Western Cape in the next few weeks.
“This as we move from the existing band of the 60-year-olds and above to the 50 and 59-year-olds, following by the 40 and 50-year-olds – that we have mass existing sites available for vaccinations. This site is due to open in the next few weeks. It will be able to handle around 4 000 vaccines per day.”

Premier Winde says he is concerned about the increase in COVID-19 infections in the province and is calling on residents to take every step to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.
He says according to the Resurgence Monitor, there is a week-on-week percentage increase in new cases at over 20% for the last 12 days.
The number of active coronavirus cases in the Western Cape has increased to more than 5 300.
