The drive to vaccinate inmates at Modderbee Correctional Services has started, and so far has been going well.

Acting area commissioner Moipone Makhetha said the drive started on July 21, a day after the programme to vaccinate inmates around the country was launched by the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola, at the Johannesburg Prison.

The nursing staff at Modderbee have been vaccinating approximately 300 inmates per day with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which only requires a single dose.
