The MMC for Health and Social Development Cllr Charlotte Zitha wishes the residents of Ekurhuleni a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
This is the time of the year when family and friends gather to enjoy the festivities. During this time, we need to be on high alert and continue adhering to the COVID-19 protocols such as wearing of masks, practising hand hygiene, ensuring good ventilation when indoors, physically distancing and avoiding crowds.
However, vaccines remain a game-changing tool to strengthen the fight against the pandemic.
It is hugely encouraging seeing the City’s healthcare workers working with so much dedication to provide fair and equitable access to vaccines.
We call upon all Ekurhuleni residents to visit their nearest vaccination sites and be vaccinated, which will bring us one-step closer to the things we have missed.
