President Cyril Ramaphosa says while the government respects workers' right to bodily integrity when it comes to Covid-19 vaccinations, a balance must be found with others' right to work in a safe environment.

Ramaphosa said defeating the Covid-19 pandemic remained a priority and that “we must all ensure that we mobilise as many people as possible to be vaccinated”.He said the ANC and its alliance partners must lead popular vaccination campaigns as they interface with voters during campaigning for the November 1 local government elections.

Ensuring that sufficient numbers of people are vaccinated is the only way to prevent new, potentially more infectious variants from emerging, he said.“South Africans must stand together to combat the many conspiracy theories about vaccines.“We must, as leaders, spread the message that vaccines are safe, that vaccines work and are very effective in preventing severe illness from Covid-19.”

Earlier, Cosatu presidentwarned the same meeting that mandatory vaccinations would not work and might distract from the work of convincing every person on the need to vaccinate.“We cannot afford scandals of people selling vaccine certificates,” she said. headtopics.com

Losi said the labour federation supported the call for every person to vaccinate. This, she said, should be done through education, engagement and persuasion.She called for the four-day meeting to emerge with a clear call to go out and mobilise every worker and their family and ensure that all have received their vaccines by Christmas.

“We cannot afford to fail,” she said. “We need to engage every member, worker and their family on why this is critical not only to save their lives and jobs, but also their families.“This is the only way for the economy to emerge safely. We owe it to our health workers.”

Mr President please explain to big pharma people will probably vaccinate when most of the trials has been completed. Vaccinations promoted so aggressively also contributes to hesitancy. Vaccine prevents death or severe illness as explained by scientists, but does not prevent infection. Virus mutation happens in both vaxxed or unvaxxed infection. The unvaccinated seems to be no threat to the vaccinated according to science.

Kant even after vaccination they are not safe from those who are not vaccinated!! Kant vaccine yafana ne ANC Lutho ukusebenza🙄
