Then I am either lucky or thorough because the government has always confused my name, well, most people do.

South Africans whose personal data was not captured correctly in the EVDS must return to the vaccination site to correct it.
Down the road there was a pop up drive-through vaccination site next to a large church. It's since closed and gone (the vaccination site, the church is still there). What do those poor schmucks do?

You can go to any site, all the official administrators (and vaccinators) has access to EVDS.

South Africans struggling to download Covid-19 vaccination certificates — what you must do

The DoH screwed up! The various provinces added their own mess. And then we get to the incompetence at the vax sites themselves!

The public site here in PTA East was a mess! I, fortunately, cottoned on to their mess quickly and got them to fix up errors involving the people I helped pretty quickly.

And that STILL did not explain the mess of getting the digital certificates downloaded.

The system is BROKEN end of story.

Assume this only affects walk-ins who had their data captured by a clerk at the vaccine site? I mean if you registered yourself and there's an error it's your own fat fingers' fault, no?

Considering how many people in SA don't have access to the internet and are functionally illiterate, I'd bet that a lot, if not the majority of people did not register on the EVDS themselves.

Those people are not downloading a ecert, are they?

So the issue must be pebkac? Can't you go back to your own evds profile and correct your details yourself from the comfort of your porn chair in your living room?

Perhaps they take help of others? @Geoff.D frequently claims he helps people in registering & getting them to vaccination sites. Maybe vax sites do make allowances for such people and register them on EVDS on-site?

Even with a booking places were capturing everything on site.

I found I could not download the certificate using my phone, tried a dozen times. When I did it from my windows pc it downloaded straight away.
