Media Statement

19 August 2021

Mediclinic Paarl is now operating a COVID-19 vaccination centre, providing access for any eligible member of the public who still needs to be vaccinated.

The vaccination centre is operating on an appointment basis, to ensure that those allocated to our facilities by the EVDS system are prioritised and that there is sufficient stock for these individuals. Limited walk-ins will be accepted where EVDS vaccination appointments have not been met. The vaccination centre will operate Monday-Friday, between 08:00 -16:00 and will be offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

As this pandemic continues to progress throughout South Africa, Mediclinic would strongly emphasise the need for the public to protect their own health and the health of others by being vaccinated against COVID-19. Once you are eligible, register yourself for the vaccination and then go to be vaccinated. Vaccination protects against becoming severely ill from the virus, as well as reducing the risk of death. We ask community members to please assist others who need help with registering.

For more information visit Mediclinic Paarl page on the Mediclinic.co.za website:  (https://www.mediclinic.co.za/en/paarl/home.html).

Mediclinic is proud to play a part in the public phase of the roll-out as well as completing the vaccination of our own healthcare workers.

Get your vaccine today – it is #OurBestShot at a healthier future!
