Phase 2: Vaccination Registration Opening


Online registration for Phase 2 of the country’s vaccination rollout programme was launched today.

The Department of Health notified the University, which is preparing itself as an accredited vaccination centre, that its Electronic Vaccine Data System (EVDS) is now open.

All staff over the age of 60 are encouraged to register now in preparation for the second phase of the programme. Vaccination, however, is voluntary.

Once Phase 1 of the vaccination rollout programme for health care workers has been completed, those individuals who fall into Phase 2 will be vaccinated. This group includes all those over the age of 60.

To register you will need:

  • Access to the internet
  • Your ID number or passport (non-SA) and general contact information. Your cellphone will be used as the primary mode of communication
  • Your medical aid details.

With this information already at hand, the eight-step registration process should take no longer than two to three minutes to complete.

The University is also developing its own online vaccination management system to supplement the centralised EVDS.
