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.

Overberg Covid-19 Vaccination Weekly Update - 12 July 2021

Between 25 May and 9 July 2021, we have vaccinated 20 749 persons over the age of 60 at Old Age Homes and public sites across the Overberg District and 1 876 educators. With the increase in vaccines we are now able to ensure more eligible people are vaccinated quicker.  

We have also seen some private sites open in the Overberg District and people are now able to receive their vaccines privately at Clicks pharmacies in HermanusSwellendam and Albertyn Pharmacy in Kleinmond. These private sites are currently only offering vaccines to those with appointments, which is in support of our vaccination rollout to all eligible persons.  

During this week the Department of Health in the Overberg started administering second doses to those who are eligible. Ian Pansegrouw, the first person over 60 to receive his vaccine in the Overberg were amongst those to receive their second dose. According to Mr Pansegrouw he experienced no side effects after his first dose, “I was able to play golf after my first dose, my arm was a bit sensitive at the site of the injection but that is to be expected. I am happy that I was able to receive my second dose in the midst of the third wave and now feel protected,” says Mr Pansegrouw.  

As of 1 July 2021, the registration for COVID vaccination opened on the EVDS for people over the age of 50 years.  From Thursday, 15 July 2021, people aged between 35 and 49 years old can register for the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccination of this age bracket is expected to commence on 1 August 2021. This is a positive step in our efforts to provide vaccine coverage to our population. The EVDS system is currently accepting registrations and is allocating appointments for the people over 50 years to be vaccinated. The SMS appointment notifications to people over the age of 50 years who have successfully registered, commenced on Friday, 2nd July to allow for scheduled appointments as from Monday, 5th July. Thus over 50-year-olds with valid appointments is being accepted at our vaccination sites. One of our main priorities remains that of reaching and vaccinating all over 60s.

The EVDS system is currently allocating available appointment slots in the following order of priority: 

Priority 1 - people 60 years and older requiring their 1st dose of Pfizer vaccine; 

Priority 2 - people 60 years and older who are eligible for their 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine (approximately 42 days after their 1st dose); 

Priority 3 - people aged 50 -59 years requiring their 1st dose of Pfizer vaccine.

As usual, a limited numbers of walk-ins will be accommodated at the vaccination sites. The number of walk-ins depend on the available capacity and vaccine doses available at each individual site.

Keeping safe during the Third Wave  

We are currently in the midst of an established Third Wave of Covid-19 infections. We are seeing an increase in cases throughout the District. The best way we can protect each other is to avoid social gatherings outside our immediate home environment and protect our ‘bubble’. This is your ‘safe space’.   

Thus, let’s keep this behaviour going for the next few weeks, to break the chain of transmission and flatten the curve.  

We can avoid a transmission chain from setting in by protecting our air space.   

  • Avoid all large gatherings;   
  • Avoid any social gatherings where possible;   
  • If you need to go out to do activities such as shopping, always wear your mask and keep it short;  
  • If you must meet, keep it outdoors, small and short;   
  • When indoors, dress warmly and ensure the windows are open so your space is well ventilated with fresh air;  
  • If sick, stay home  

We thank the public for the co-operation and patience. Let’s work together to roll out the vaccines safely, efficiently and in a fair and dignified manner for all our citizens. Please watch your local media for more details or visit https://coronavirus.westerncape.gov.za/vaccine/
