Virgin Active has partnered with Discovery Health to provide designated areas in selected clubs around the country as vaccination sites, in support of the South African Government’s national vaccination rollout plan.
Government’s national vaccination roll-out will be administered in accredited vaccination sites across the country, including pharmacies, GP practices, hospitals and dedicated vaccination sites like the ones being set up in our clubs. As part of this, we will initially be piloting vaccination centres in three locations around the country. We are working closely with Discovery Health to ensure a seamless process with no disruption to our members training in the club. Discovery Health will be the administrators of these vaccination sites (as authorised by Government) and responsible for protocols and procedures. Post the pilot phase, we aim to roll this out to further Virgin Active locations across the country, 21 in total.
We are committed to doing our part in helping South Africans live healthy, active lives, and are proud to be able to support Discovery Health and Government in their vaccination plans. South Africans can register on the Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) Self Registration Portal – currently open for health care workers and people over 35 years of age.
