South Africa launches drive to vaccinate 500,000 in 2 days

  South Africa launches drive to vaccinate 500,000 in 2 days CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — South Africa launched a new COVID-19 vaccination drive Friday and will try to give doses to 500,000 people in two days to reinvigorate a flagging campaign that’s coming up against hesitancy and complacency in the continent’s worst-affected country. The campaign will run through Saturday, and is the first time South Africa has offered vaccines on a wide scale to people on the weekend. The government has urged anyone 18 or over who hasn't been vaccinated to turn up at hospitals, town centers and mobile clinics nationwide for a shot and, in an attempt to encourage them, dropped requirements that they must register for an appointment in advance.

Jennifer Aniston is not taking any chances when it comes to COVID-19.

The Golden Globe winner, 52, recently admitted that she had to cut ties with a few people in her "weekly routine" over their vaccination status. "There's still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don't listen to the facts. It's a real shame," she said in InStyle's September cover interview.

"I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate," Aniston continued. "I feel it's your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we're not all podded up and being tested every single day. It's tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don't feel based in anything except fear or propaganda."

Hugh Jackman smiling for the camera: Not long after Kathy Griffin announced that she was on her way into surgery for stage 1 lung cancer (more on that next), Hugh Jackman -- who's battled skin cancer for years -- shared a clip on Instagram in which he revealed he'd just had another biopsy on his nose.

She's been an advocate for social distancing and other COVID-19 precautions since the pandemic began in March 2020. Aniston previously pleaded with her 37.7 million followers to wear a mask last June. "This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples' lives. And it really shouldn't be a debate," she wrote on Instagram at the time.

Covid affects all ages."

The Friends star also cited the pandemic and a lack of social distancing for the delay of the show's reunion special, which recently earned an Emmy Award nomination for outstanding variety special (pre-recorded).

"Unfortunately it's very sad that we had to move it again," Aniston told Deadline in August. "It was, 'How do we do this with live audiences?' This is not a safe time. Period. That's the bottom line. It's not a safe time to do it."

Aniston recently told PEOPLE about the importance she's found in meditating "every day" as the pandemic continues to rage on. "I just have faith in a bigger picture, I guess," she said in June. "And I believe in humanity, even though there's so much to discourage us from believing in it — but I do."
