Latest vaccine information

Obs gets a C19 vaccine site! UCT has opened a large vaccine site at Forest Hill Residence on Main Road. It will be open every weekday and accepts walk-ins. Please register on EVDS if you can as it makes the process smoother for everyone.

Everyone 18 and over is eligible to get vaccine. Vaccines reduce chances of transmission and prevent severe disease and death. They are our best bet to stop C19 before it comes up with a new variant that causes chaos.

WCDoH Dr Keith Cloete encourages over 50s to get the C19 vaccine “urgently” as this group has the most hospital admissions and deaths. According to provincial data, 68% of hospital admissions and 87% of deaths recorded in the third wave are among the over-50s. (12 August 2021).

Everyone will be able to get vaccine. We want you to be safe and well. At public sector vaccine sites – If you have lost your SA ID, please get a police affidavit or present a certified copy; if you are undocumented, you can walk-in and get a vaccine; you will NOT be reported. Home visits – if someone is unwell and unable to go to vaccine site, can be arranged by calling the Call Centre on 0860 142 142.
