The health department was to publicise a list of affected areas soon.
Maja said the department was concerned about the types of medication that was stolen, including chronic medication meant for the treatment of TB, HIV and diabetes.
“The public is warned not to buy any medicines offered for sale by anyone other than registered medical practitioners, pharmacies or hospitals, and to report any attempted sale to the SAPS immediately.
“Stolen or improperly dispensed medicines are extremely dangerous as they may not have been stored properly, may be contaminated, or may cause dangerous side-effects.
“The department is working closely with other departments in the security cluster and private sector to ensure that access to healthcare services and operations at vaccination sites are restored.”
