The CEO of Rhino Africa said vaccines play a vital role in the recovery of the tourism industry.
South Africa has vaccinated 14% of its adult population

Rhino Africa has become the first company in South Africa to implement a policy mandating staff to be vaccinated.

In an article published earlier on 3 August, Rhino Africa CEO David Ryan said the fight against Covid-19, or getting people to vaccinate in South Africa and across the globe, has largely been left to businesses and business leaders to facilitate and advocate.

Adding that it is a daunting task, given that vaccine hesitancy is at 40% in South Africa.

While speaking on eNCA, Ryan said the policy had been well received by staff members due to the company’s strong culture.

“We also understand that travel depends on vaccination and we at Rhino are dependent on travel,” he said.

To date South Africa has reached nearly 10% of its vaccination target after administering just over nine million Covid-19 vaccine doses.

The National Health Department is aiming to inoculate 35 to 40 million people by the end of this year or by early next year.
