The City of Ekurhuleni will assist residents aged 60 years or older to register on the COVID-19 Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS). The system is now open for registration of the elderly as announced by the National Department of Health.
Ekurhuleni’s health practitioners will work with the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) to target social grant pay points, and churches to register citizens aged 60 years and older who wish to be next in line to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
Member of Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Health and Social Services Cllr Nomadlozi Nkosi said the City wanted to ensure that no one who wish to be vaccinated was left out from registering on the EVDS, regardless of their access to internet connection.
“Our health practitioners are coordinating with the ward-based outreach team members, community development workers and community support programme personnel to assist in registering the elderly during their daily door-to-door campaigns,” MMC Nkosi said.
Residents who can register by themselves but do not have internet connection, are encouraged to use the free Wi-Fi available at the City’s libraries, clinics and Customer Care Centres.
