What about the awesome Cuban vaccine? Cuban has the best doctors and engineers in the world and are a leading light in developing anything medical. Heck, and amazing engineering! Their cars are the best on the planet! 1950s American steel!

The govt website says there is a facility for registration on site, but I think for your convenience you are better off getting assistance and registering online.

let me just say condolences to those thinking of getting the vaccine. At least you won't need to worry about being brain dead, you're there already

  • Phase 1 – It is currently underway and is focused on healthcare workers.
  • Phase 2 – Set to start on 17 May 2021 and will focus on the elderly and other vulnerable sections of the population.
  • Phase 3 – Set to start in October and will focus on the rest of the population.

So in reality, due to demographics (ZA population < 60), ZA starting actual vaccination in October.
Meanwhile in some countries they will be 100% done.
Pathetic

Thanks to the ANC's bungling of securing vaccines, it is probably because other countries will be 100% done by October that we can actually start, since only then will the countries who joined the back of the queue far too late will get their hands on the vaccine.

It is what annoys me whenever I see the government claim "we have secured another 10 milllion vaccines!". Great, at what timeline? Will the 10m vaccines arrive tomorrow, next week, next month, next year? I'm pretty sure I can secure 100m vaccines if I tell J&J I will only take delivery in 2022.

Any one notice the small gaps?

  • Group A – Registration of all clients older than 80 years.
  • Group B – Registration of all clients older than 60 years but younger than 80 years.

My wife is not older than 80, and she is not older than 60 years but younger than 80 years.

She IS 80!

Doubt that, even seeing signs in countries that have had vaccines saying, that even if you've had the vaccine no mask no service.

We got our Discovery registration emails an hour or so ago, easy registration and you list any chronic conditions, both of us got confirmation and registration codes. No booking slots available yet.

I love it when the Facebook scientists say things like this. Not only do you get a good laugh at how stupid they are, you also jump up the vaccine queue a little bit. Win/win.

A local mosque has advertised it is providing facilities for online registration on the government site for those without internet access tomorrow - a good initiative I thought.

Do you mind me asking how old you are? I'm just wondering if they are sending out the emails according to the priority groups.

Do we know if South Africa has a system dedicated to Vaccine adverse effects, like the US' VAERS data ?

Both of us not far over 70. My brother and his wife over 60 but not 70 and on Discovery, I will check with them if they have received the emails today.
