The beloved Ndlovu Youth Choir is back and has released a new song for an important cause. The renowned choir is joining the vaccine efforts and encouraging South Africans to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as they can.

Called ‘Jaba Jaba’, the song is calling on residents to get vaccinated so that we can get the party started once again. They also encourage people to not give in to rumours and fake news around the vaccine.

“Now that the vaccines are here, let us encourage one another to get the jab and do the Jaba Jaba,” the Choir posted to social media

Listen to the infectious beat here:

The first batch of the COVID-19 vaccine is officially landing in South Africa on Monday, February 1. Frontline healthcare workers will be among the first to receive the vaccine in Phase 1, followed by essential workers, those in congregate settings, those over 60 and people over 18 with comorbidities in phase 2. Other persons over 18-years-old will receive the vaccine in phase 3.

The vaccine will be delivered using three platforms during phase one:

  1. Work-based programmes: Best for hospital-based staff, especially at district level private and public hospitals.
  2. Outreach-based programmes using mobile teams moving between facilities: Best for primary healthcare providers, community health workers, and private medical centres.
  3. Vaccination centres, particularly in remote areas: Ideal for independent healthcare workers.

During phases two and three the same programmes will be used, with the addition of vaccinations at public primary healthcare facilities.
