 Local Libraries assisting with registration process for Covid-19 vaccination  – Hours extended

George Municipality has provided venues for the  public to receive assistance with their registration process on the Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) for the Covid-19 vaccination. The system is currently only open for persons over 60 years of age, and healthworkers. The response from the public has been good and to that end, the hours have been extended at the various libraries throughout George, with two additional venues added.

“George Municipality is delighted to be able to assist the Department of Health with their Vaccination programme by providing venues and computers, where the public can come in to register themselves. Our librarians have been specially trained to assist with the process which takes no more than five minutes,” said Acting Municipal Manager, Dr Michele Gratz.

If you or a senior family member do not have access to the internet or data, please visit one of the libraries listed below between 09:00 – 13:00 Monday to Friday and our librarians
will assist you with the EVDS registration process. Please ensure you bring your ID Book or ID number; if you belong to a Medical Aid then the Medical Aid Card and or the number;  and a working cellphone number,  as you will be receiving follow up SMS from the system about where to go for your vaccination.

Those who have registered will then receive an SMS with a date, time and venue. SMS messages will be sent out a few days in advance in order for clients to make the necessary arrangements. Please do not visit vaccination sites if you have not received your SMS to confirm your appointment.

If you are over 60 and registered for your COVID-19 vaccine, you can expect:

  • An SMS confirming your registration.
  • A second SMS with an appointment date and the place – for those who have already registered this should come in the next 2-3 weeks.
  • Get vaccinated with your first dose.
  • Proof of vaccination card.
  • An appointment date for your second dose (if two-dose vaccine).
