Class of 2020-2021
I am a proud alumnus of the Wits-Alive MSc (Med) in the field of Vaccinology program, having graduated in 2022. As part of my studies in Vaccinology, I conducted a descriptive cross-sectional study that explored vaccination dropout rates and factors associated with dropout among children aged 24-35 months of age in Eastern Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal Provinces in South Africa. I have a great passion and interest contributing to the control of vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs). I extend my thanks and gratitude to all supervisors, Wits-Alive and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) for the support received during my studies.
