The Shoprite Group believes it is critical for the vaccination roll-out to be implemented successfully in South Africa to curb the virus and worldwide pandemic.
It is currently focusing on encouraging employees to vaccinate with an information campaign. Mobile clinics are also travelling to stores to make it easier for employees to register and get vaccinated.
The Group remains eager to see a rapid vaccine roll-out programme and continues to actively engage with the Department of Health.
“It's our moral obligation to one another, our colleagues, our friends, our family, that we get vaccinated.”
– Pieter Engelbrecht, CEO of the Shoprite Group
