In his weekly Coronavirus update, the Premier of the Western Cape – Alan Winde recently said that his government’s goal was to vaccinate all of the 720 000 over 60 residents currently resident in the province.
He also encouraged all to use the EVDS system to register for the vaccine via
“If any resident is struggling to register, you may contact the call centre on 0860 142 142. Our teams are trained and on stand-by to talk residents through the simple, 8 step process.
Once most of this age band has been vaccinated, we will push to have the EVDS system opened to lower age bands. We will ensure, through a strong communication campaign, that residents are aware of the opening of the system to younger residents.”
