    South Africa has begun vaccinating citizens over the age of 60 against the corobnavirus – the second group to be prioritized, after healthcare workers. South Africa has the continent’s highest number of COVID-19 cases, but so far it has only vaccinated one percent of its population. While more than a million South Africans over 60 have registered for the jab, there are only 87 vaccination centers across the entire nation.
