UWC Launches Vaccination Centre


The University of the Western Cape has launched a vaccination centre on Friday 18 June. The vaccination centre has been introduced to vaccinate all staff and students over the age of 60.


The UWC COVID-19 Vaccination Centre has officially been launched. According to Professor Vivienne Lawack, the acting rector stated that all staff and students over the age of 60 are eligible for the vaccines at the centre. 

At the moment, the distribution of vaccines has been slow, with only people over the age of 60 and health workers receiving vaccinations.

Professor Lawack announced that the vaccines are also available to the spouses of staff members and parents of students who are over the age of 60.

After the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), UWC is the second tertiary institution in the province to launch a vaccination site.

At the beginning of June, CPUT became the first university in South Africa to launch a dedicated COVID-19 Vaccination Centre for its students and staff members.

Staff members from the Faculty of Health and Wellness Sciences, campus health clinics, and the HIV/Aids unit were trained to administer the vaccines.

The UWC Vaccination Centre will be open from 09:00 to 15:30 from Tuesdays to Fridays.
