Vooma Vaccination week aims to achieve 1million inoculations against COVID-19

The Health Department has launched a ‘Vooma week’ that will run until 10 December as part of a bid to vaccinate a further million people ahead of the festive season.

The City of Cape Town’s health professionals says it is making vaccinations against Covid-19 widely available with a number of fixed and roving sites opening their doors on Saturday and Sunday.

Mayco member for Community Services and Health, Patricia van der Ross says health workers are on standby to help with any COVID-19 enquiries should you be hestitant.

''Vaccine hesitancy is prevalent in many communities because of widespread misinformation. The Vooma vaccination weekend gives residents an opportunity to go to one of the public health vaccination sites and have all their questions answered, but also to get vaccinated. Pre-registration is no longer a requirement, so individuals can literally arrive at a vaccination site and will be guided through the entire process.''

Van der Ross encouraged Capetonians to visit the sites, even if they have not yet registered.

‘’Getting vaccinated means you’re less likely to end up in hospital or die should you contract Covid-19. I urge our residents to make full use of these additional opportunities before we enter the fourth wave of infections.’’

Additional incentives have been introduced to help vaccinating people. These include:

·        Vooma vouchers of R200 for people aged 50 years or older who come for their first vaccination; and

·        A lucky draw with hundreds of cash prizes of R1,000, R10,000 and R100,000 for everyone who has received at least one vaccination by the end of the year.

To gain entry into the lucky draw, people aged 50 and older that have been vaccinated before or on 31 December and whose details are captured on the EVDS system will be eligible. Winners will be contacted on the number they have given when they vaccinated.
