A vote and a vaccine: X marks the spot as 63,000 people are vaccinated on voting day
Voting stations become hybrid destinations during the Covid-19 pandemic
The national Department of Health turned Monday’s voting stations into hybrid destinations where citizens could get a vote and a vaccine.
According to departmental spokesperson Foster Mohale, 1,000 pop-up vaccination sites were set up at voting stations across the country and more than 63,000 people received the jab.
“The purpose was to bring vaccination services closer to the people, as they go to cast their votes, as part of our efforts to ramp up vaccinations,” said Mohale. DM
