Ruth Segage from Library and Information Services was the first staff member to be vaccinated at the campus site.
In addressing students, MEC Manzini emphasised that the only way to defeat COVID-19, is by achieving herd immunity, thus every eligible person should be vaccinated.
Newly appointed Campus Rector, Dr Molefe Maleka, accompanied the MEC on a walkabout at the campus vaccination site. He also encouraged the campus community to be vaccinated and joined the President of the campus SRC, Tshepo Ismael Makua and other members of the SRC, Mr & Miss TUT eMalahleni Campus, staff and students to get his second jab.
The drive formed part of the national drive to ensure as many people as possible have access to and get vaccinated towards achieving herd immunity.
