Faircape Life: All 6 Estates are Vaccinated Retirement Villages

Faircape Life: All 6 Estates are Vaccinated Retirement Villages

In May 2021, the Western Cape Government began ‘Phase 2’ of the vaccination roll out programme. Phase 2 of the programme aims to vaccinate 16.5 million South Africans beginning with those 60 years and older. It’s with tremendous joy that we announce: all 6 Faircape Life villages have been successfully vaccinated! With the help of our colleagues at Faircape Health, we administered all vaccines on-site (followed by tea and baked treats!). Take a look at our vaccine rollout numbers:

Tokai Estate: 155 Vaccinated On-Site

Villagers at Tokai Estate began receiving vaccinations on the 28th of May. The Constantia Bulletin covered the event and we were featured on the front page!

Here’s what villagers had to say about the Faircape Life vaccine roll out:

"What a pleasure to enjoy the luxury of VIP treatment regarding the Vaccination procedure! You and your team have organized the roll out most impressively. Thank you for your professional efficiency. Best wishes and many thanks"
