Principals and teachers from across Pietermaritzburg lined up at the East Street Clinic on Wednesday to receive vaccines as part of the nationwide roll-out aimed at teachers and staff.

Ridge Primary School principal, Raveen Mohanlall, told The Witness he was pleased with his experience in receiving his vaccination shot.

“It has been a very pleasant experience. This effort was well organised by the Department of Health and Education and we as educators feel much more confident to teach our pupils than we were before,” said Mohanlall.
