The Gauteng Health Department will set up 94 pop-up mobile vaccination sites at selected voting stations on election day, 1 November 2021. It says the aim is to vaccinate as many people as possible.
The sites will be spread across all five districts and will be operational throughout the day.
All eligible people are encouraged to get vaccinated ahead of the fourth wave to ensure that they are protected from severe illness, hospitalisation or death in the event that they contract the coronavirus.
The department’s spokesperson is Kwara Kekana …
“You are reminded to bring your ID or birth certificate or police signed affidavit confirming your identity to the vaccination site. The team will register you on EVDS and vaccinate you on the spot. With the final local government elections campaign happening at the moment, all those involved in the campaign are reminded about the need to continue to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols as mass gatherings remain potential super-spreaders of the virus,” says the Department’s Spokesperson, Kwara Kekana.
