Western Cape Premier, Alan Winde, says the province is on track to administer 120 000 vaccines in the next week.
So far, over 589 000 vaccinations have been administered in the province since the start of the process.
He says the province is also on track to open a mass vaccination site at the Athlone Stadium next month which will serve as both a drive and walk-through.
With the improvement in vaccine supply and more access to vaccination sites, we were able to increase the number of vaccinations done over the past week. Read more about this milestone and what you can expect next week: https://t.co/LmMG0kZJRV. pic.twitter.com/vxhot3OZHj
