MELOMED GATESVILLE VACCINATION CENTRE PROTOCOLS (03 March 2021)
Please be advised that the National Department of Health has appointed a selected list of Private Hospitals as vaccination centres in the country.
Melomed Gatesville is one of the select few private hospitals that has been chosen to service acute Private Healthcare Facilities in Cape Town metropole and the surrounding towns.
The allocation of vaccines to Melomed Gatesville Vaccination Centre is regulated and controlled by the National Department of Health (NDOH) who have stipulated that only Frontline Healthcare workers in acute Private Hospitals can be vaccinated at the Melomed Gatesville Vaccination Centre. The NDOH allocates a limited amount of vaccines per day for this purpose.
Needless to say, the aforementioned healthcare workers can only be vaccinated once they receive a electronic token number from the National Department of Health, informing them that they can be vaccinated at the Melomed Gatesville Vaccination Centre.
Regretfully, all other private healthcare workers (with or without tokens) who do not comply with the above, cannot be vaccinated at the Melomed Gatesville Vaccination Centre because we have to strictly comply with the guidelines and instructions from the National Department of Health.
Frontline Healthcare workers who present themselves at the Melomed Gatesville Vaccination Centre must produce written confirmation that:-
1. They have an electronic token number.
2. They have been directed by NDOH in writing to the Melomed Gatesville Vaccination Centre at their allocated date/time slot.
3. They have an ID (Identity Document) or Passport.
4. They have an Employee Card/Professional Council Registration.
Kindly be advised the above requirements are to prevent abuse of the vaccination process by persons who are not frontline healthcare workers exposed to covid-19 positive patients.
