The Western Cape Government has launched a Covid-19 vaccine registration dashboard, which gives residents a breakdown by district and local municipality of residents who have registered for their vaccine.

It also enables authorities to quickly identify areas with low registration. This will enable targeted interventions to increase vaccine registration, of residents 60 years and older.

The dashboard also features:

• An interactive “heat map” that will allow residents to zoom into their neighbourhood to see how many elderly people may reside in the community.
• A list of active vaccination sites, which will also tell you how many residents are within a 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 km radius of the site.
• A list of ‘points of interest’, which will include our free Wi-Fi spots, religious centres, shopping areas, old age homes, government offices among others.

Premier Alan Winde says the most evident trend so far is that registrations in poorer communities are much lower when compared to other areas. The main reason for this is the lack of access to the resources that would enable registration on the EVDS. He has again appealed to tech-savvy residents to help the elderly to register.
