Vooma vaccination camapign in W. Cape

The Northern and Tygerberg health teams will be ramping up their vaccination outreach programmes on Friday and Saturday as part of the National VOOMA Vaccination weekend. 

“Vooma” is derived from the Afrikaans  word “woema” meaning  ‘energy and speed’. It also resembles the Nguni word ”vuma” meaning ‘agree’.  This is what we hope to achieve: Agreement to move with energy and speed to vaccinate as many people as possible by Christmas,’’ says Shimoney Regter, Western Cape Depaertment of Health Spokesperson.

Community members in the Northern and Tygerberg areas, who are 18 years and older and who have not been vaccinated yet, are encouraged to visit the following vaccination sites. Please bring your ID or passport if you can. Assisted registration will be provided onsite.

80 vaccination sites will open across the Western Cape this weekend.


 ‘’As part of the #saveoursummer campaign, the department is increase opportunities for vaccinations before Christmas.  We ask that citizens take up the opportunity to get vaccinated so we can ensure many more lives can be saved during the fourth wave,’’ added Regter.
