Covid-19 registrations for phase 2 rollout open now

Health minister, Dr. Zweli Mkhize made an announcement that online registrations for phase 2 of South Africa’s Covid-19 vaccine rollout will officially open at 16h00 on Friday, 16 April.

Electronic vaccination data system

During a media briefing, the health minister said that qualifying workers will be able to sign up for the vaccine by using the government’s electronic vaccination data system (EVDS).

Mkhize said that phase 2 will initially focus on people who are over 60 years of age. He also said that the vaccine rollout will open to younger age groups as more South Africans are vaccinated.

Notification

Those who qualify will receive an SMS, informing them of the time and place that the vaccine will be available. The SMS will also contain an unique code that patients are required to show their vaccinator. Patients will also need to provide their ID and a contact number when they arrive at the vaccination site.

The official phase 2 rollout is expected to begin from 17 May.
