A group of final-year nursing students has been given the opportunity of a lifetime.
More than 250 final-year nursing students from the University of the Western Cape have been selected to participate in the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
Trained by the Western Cape health department to administer vaccinations they are busy preparing to move out across the province to help boost the rollout.
The first group is set to start on 17 June.
An initiative of the Western Cape health department, it’s meant to give the nurses of tomorrow valuable experience, while helping to carry out inoculations as fast as they can.
The health department says the students will be monitored by a supervisor and all necessary precautions will be followed for everyone’s safety.
