Agricultural workers vaccinated

The MEC for Agriculture, Minister Ivan Meyer, and Executive Mayor of the Cape Winelands District Municipality, Ald (Dr) Elna von Schlicht, visited Ceres Hospital’s Covid-19 vaccination site to witness the first round of vaccinations for agricultural workers over the age of 60. 

The Mayor, who received her first dose of the vaccination a few weeks ago, shared with the agricultural workers how relieved she was after receiving the first dose and said, “Through immunisation we can protect our loved ones and make sure that we are fit and healthy to work.”

The Witzenberg agricultural sector employs a huge number of permanent and seasonal staff to assist in harvesting the export fruit that the area is so well-known for.
