Book at some libraries for vaccine

-

As per the National Adjusted Alert Level 4 announced by President Ramaphosa, the Department of Cultural Affairs has closed some facilities to members of the public, inclusive of libraries.

However, to ensure equity and fairness in the vaccinatio­n programme in the Western Cape, libraries remain a vital resource for those who need to register for their vaccine.

As access to the technology required to register for the vaccine remains a challenge, particular­ly in rural areas, some of the libraries have given limited access to the public to safely use the broadband and computers to register for vaccinatio­ns across the province.

The libraries in the following municipali­ties are available for online registrati­ons:

Hessequa

George

Oudtshoorn

Kannaland

Bitou (library halls are used for registrati­on)

Knysna

The list of closed facilities can be found at www.westerncap­e.gov.za/news/ministerma­rais-working-reopen-vaccinatio­nregistrat­ion-libraries.
