Let’s stay safe this long weekend to reduce the impact of the third wave

This long weekend and beyond, we call on all residents to play their part through strong safety behaviours so that we can delay the third wave while we roll out our vaccine campaign. 

We also call on residents to help those over 60 to register on the EVDS system, which can be found at: https://vaccine.enroll.health.gov.za/ 

Should you need assistance with the registration process, do not hesitate to visit www.sacoronavirus.co.za/evds/support/ or call our call centre on 0860 142 142.
