On Wednesday, 23 June, the Solidarity Fund will host a webinar on vaccine literacy and core preventative behaviours.

A panel of medical experts will aim to dispel myths and educate the public on inoculations during the online discussion.

South Africa's vaccine rollout is in full swing for those aged 60 and above, but the country is experiencing low levels of vaccine acceptance.
