Over 60 and registered for your COVID-19 vaccine?
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM TODAY, MONDAY 24 May 2021, IN THE OVERSTRAND
Following the conclusion of the first week of the Phase 2 vaccination program for over 60 year-olds in the Metro, the WC Department of Health would like to advise residents of the Overstrand on what to expect in the coming weeks.
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED THIS WEEK?
During this week the vaccine roll out will initially be launched at the following Old Age Homes in Hermanus:
- Huis Lettie Theron
- Hermanus Frail Care (SOFCA)
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED FROM 31 MAY 2021?
From 31 May 2021 more vaccination sites will come online throughout the Overberg District.
The following Overstrand sites will come online from 31 May:
- Hawston Thusong Hall
- Stanford Clinic
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU MISSED YOUR APPOINTMENT?
If you missed your appointment date, don’t worry. All unredeemed vaccination vouchers will remain open on the database.
The system will then generate a second appointment date, venue and time. If you unfortunately miss this appointment, the system will generate a third invitation.
Should you miss your third appointment, the system will close your registration and you will need to contact 0800 029 999.
We ask that you do not come to a facility to receive your vaccination if you have not been contacted and received an SMS confirming your appointment date and time, as well as your unique code.
Those residents who have registered and still waiting for their second SMS, please do not worry. We expect most people who have registered to start getting their SMS in coming weeks. We urge residents to take up their invitation to be vaccinated the first time they receive their invitation SMS.
The time has come to fight back against Covid-19. #LetsDoThis, Western Cape.
