Meanwhile, KwaZulu-Natal might not be in a third wave, but the growing number of infections is still a concern.
A further 21 vaccinations sites have been opened to accommodate more than 100,000 J&J vaccines allocated to the provincial education sector.
In the Western Cape, a total of 6,000 teachers are expected to be vaccinated.
