Setting an example

Mieke Jooste, 12, from Observatory, overcame her fear of needles to get her Covid-19 vaccine at the City of Cape Town’s Hope Street Clinic. “I owe it to my peer group to set the example. This pandemic has caused a lot of pain among family, friends and neighbours. Sadly, our teachers have also succumbed to this demonic pandemic and I want to encourage every 12-year-old to get vaccinated,” she said.
