Private hospitals open vaccination site

Posted in Latest News

Klerksdorp Midweek, Klerksdorp - Life Anncron, Sunningdale and Wilmed Park hospitals in partnership with NWDOH (North West Department of Health), have combined efforts to establish the Wilkoppies Vaccination Site.

The site is part of the government-accredited vaccination sites actively administering vaccines to members of the public who have registered on the government EVDS for vaccination. The site is located opposite Wilmed Park hospital.

According to Lukas Greeve, Life Anncron hospital manager, the hospitals manage this vaccination site jointly. People should register on the EVDS and will receive a SMS notification providing the date and vaccination site that they should visit.

Walk-ins (those who did register on the EVDS, but did not receive a SMS indicating the vaccination site name and date) will also be assisted in receiving vaccinations.

Please take not of the following important aspects:
- Individuals with scheduled SMS appointments may receive priority over unscheduled walk-ins.
- The site uses vaccine stock as supplied by the Department of Health. Walk-ins will not be accepted if stock levels are low.
- The site has the capacity to do a certain amount of vaccinations per hour.
- The Wilkoppies vaccination site is a service provided in collaboration with government and hospitals may be obliged to pause the vaccination programme at any point should the anticipated supply of vaccines not materialize or be delivered by the government’s vaccine suppliers.

Documentation you need to take with you to the Wilkoppies Vaccination Site: Proof of EVDS registration (SMS), ID card/book, medical scheme details (if applicable) and vaccination record/card (for the second vaccination).

After being vaccinated, you will be asked to wait in a waiting area for 15 minutes to be monitored for any reactions.
