Posted in Latest News

Klerksdorp Record, Klerksdorp - The North West Department of Health has partnered with Matlosana Mall as a step to vaccinate people even on weekends.

The initiative is part of the expansion and access of vaccination for the KOSH Community. The vaccination site in Matlosana Mall will operate as a walk-in service on Saturdays and Sundays from 09:00 until 16:00.

Other additional vaccination sites are Clicks Pharmacy Wilkoppies, Dischem Klerksdorp, Pharmacy at Spar Meiringspark, Jade Square Vaccination Site and Wilmed Park Hospital and Life Anncron’s combined site opposite Wilmed.  “The sites administer the vaccine to anyone who is eligible to vaccinate voluntarily regardless of whether they have medical aids or not. When going for shopping at the mall, please bring along your ID, passport or other form of identification. You are required to pre-register on the EVDS system to speed things up. Those who would like to be assisted with registration for vaccination are also welcome. The fact is our national response against COVID-19 has always been scientifically based, led by our world-renowned scientists,” said Nico Masiu, spokesperson.

Government encourages all South Africans to get vaccinated to reduce the risk of severe Covid-19 related disease, hospitalization and death as a result of Covid-19.

You can now simply present yourself at a vaccination site, even without an appointment where you will be registered and vaccinated.
