The Minerals Council supports government’s Vooma Vaccination drive and calls on all mineworkers to put some ‘vooma’ into vaccination and meet the challenge! By 6 October, 50% of all mining employees and contractors were partially vaccinated, of those, 60% were fully vaccinated.

Minerals Council CEO, Roger Baxter says, “Vaccines can literally mean the difference between life and death. For this reason, we and our members are supporting government’s Vooma vaccination campaign. We want as many of our employees and communities vaccinated as soon as possible in the interest of saving lives and livelihoods. We are all working together with our trade union partners and government to get the vaccine process rolled out as quickly as possible. We believe this is a significant step in the right direction.”

Dr Thuthula Balfour, Minerals Council Head of Health, also shares important information about the efficacy and safety of vaccines.
