WCG HEALTH MEDIA RELEASE - 22 July 2021

BOOTS ON THE GROUND IN THE OVERBERG DISTRICT - 22 July 2021

Over the past weeks The Western Cape Department of Health in partnership with NPO partners, have embarked on a registration drive and vaccination of the bedridden in the Overberg. This forms part of the Department’s continued proactive plan to identify communities with low registration, engage around strategies that work locally and proceed to bring opportunities to register and vaccinate vulnerable community members closer to home.

The Boots on the Ground initiative involves a partnership between the Department and local NPO’s where community health workers walk door-to-door in the community they serve to help residents who are eligible to get their COVID-19 vaccine to register. They also identify those who are bedridden to receive their vaccines in their homes.

Partners John Dickson (70) and Trish Sweetnum (65) were recently vaccinated in their home in Sandbaai, Hermanus. According to Trish, who has not been able to leave her bed for the past three years, she felt happy and relaxed to be vaccinated in her home. “We must get vaccinated especially those who are bedridden because we are vulnerable and have a greater chance of dying,” says Trish. Both John and Trish says they are so grateful for the opportunity they were afforded, and go on to thank the nurses for their kindness and fun conversation during the visit.

Gibson Mboyiya, an 84-year-old from Zwelihle, Hermanus, was also one of the people eligible to be vaccinated at home. According to his caregiver and brother, Maxim Mboyiya, the family is so grateful that Gibson was able to receive his vaccine at home as he can no longer walk long distances and they can now rest assured that he is protected against severe COVID-19.

Across the Province, the Department of Health, in partnership with local NPOs and other stakeholders, will continue to conduct door-to-door registration and activations in malls as part of the Department’s “Boots on the Ground” campaign to increase the level of registration and vaccination in the community.

Call on eligible age groups
We urge any citizen 60 years and older who has not registered or have not received an appointment, to please present to their closest public sector vaccination site for assisted registration and vaccination. The first dose for 60-year and older remains the highest priority at the moment.

Remember over 35s, 50s and 60s, you can register at no cost by:
Using the USSD service: dial *134*832# (data free) from your phone to start the registration process or send the word “REGISTER” to 0600 123 456 on WhatsApp or visit http://vaccine.enroll.health.gov.za. You can also access this link on our website, www.westerncape.gov.za.

Media Release: In order to stop the spread of fake news relating to the COVID-19

16 July 2021 

To stop the spread of fake news relating to the COVID-19 we need to educate ourselves and the people around us 

There are so many misconceptions about the COVID-19 vaccine and the effect it will have on our body. Fake news is being shared on social media and WhatsApp and it is very difficult to distinguish between what is true and what we should consider to be fake news. 

These myths include rumours suggesting that the vaccine contains a microchip, that it will alter your DNA, that it will make you sick and that it cannot be effective because it was created too quickly. These are only a few of the large number of untrue myths currently going around. 

Deputy Executive Mayor of the Overberg District Municipality, Archie Klaas says we need to ensure that the information we receive comes from a credible source. ”If you share fake news, you are part of the problem, we need to educate ourselves and use reliable sources to do so” says Councilor Klaas.  Councilor Klaas says we all have a role to play in ensuring that the correct information is shared amongst our community members especially those who are in influential positions.  

If you receive news relating to the vaccine it is important to check if the information comes from a credible source. This can be done by making sure of the following: 

  • Is the source that wrote it credible? 
  • Is the person who wrote it real? 
  • Does the information play on your fears, beliefs, and mistrust? 
  • Has the message been forwarded many times?

We need to care about what we share. If you receive a message and you want to share this with your community, take a moment and verify the information in the message before sharing it. It might be Fake news, and this can harm the people you care about. 

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, and it will prevent you from becoming seriously ill and dying from COVID-19. To ensure that everybody who is eligible receives their vaccine, we need to ensure that people register on the Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS). 

“For me as a technologically advanced person it is my responsibility to register my fellow community members. We all need to assist those who cannot register themselves” says Councilor Klaas. 

According to the Deputy Mayor he is very excited to be able to register for his COVID-19 vaccine from the 15th of July when the EVDS system opens registrations for people over 35 years. Young people can and should assist the elderly to register, they also have a responsibility to educate themselves so that they can educate others.
