B4SA today welcomed the launch of the EVDS registration process for Phase 2 of the national vaccination programme. From 4pm today, the EVDS system will be open to those over the age of 60 for registration.
Martin Kingston, of Chairman of B4SA’s Steering Committee says: “We welcome Government’s prioritisation of those over the age of 60, as they are most at risk of contracting severe illness and hospitalisation, and of death. This is significant progress. We must seek to vaccinate this group as quickly as possible and ahead of the third wave and the onset of winter. Consequently, we are calling on all those over 60, regardless of whether they are part of a medical aid scheme or not, to register on the EVDS without delay.”
