Martin Kingston, Chairman of the B4SA Steering Committee said:
“Tomorrow’s launch of Phase 2 of our national vaccination programme targeting the balance of the health care workers and the over 60s is an historic moment. It marks a critical turning point in our 14-month fight against Covid-19.
“We thank the healthcare workers who have toiled tirelessly to save lives over the past year. I also want to acknowledge the work of the public servants and private volunteers across the breadth of the country who have brought us to this point.
“Although much has been done, we also realise that we need to maintain the high levels of cooperation and accelerate the scale of registration and vaccination. Business fully supports vaccination. In respect of COVID-19, vaccination is the best health policy, it is the best social policy, and it is the best economic policy.
