Someone who is not a health-care worker will receive an sms which partially reads: “Currently, self-registration is only available for health-care workers. Should you be eligible for vaccination, you will be contacted via SMS regarding next steps.”
In other countries that have used similar systems, it took a matter of days for the registration to be completed.
Some local health-care workers, however, have already received feedback via SMS.
Kolisi Sinyaya shared a screenshot of her registration feedback, saying she had successfully registered.
One of the glitches, however, may be that there is no call centre to immediately assist if there are any queries.
The only numbers provided on the EVDS page is the Covid-19 hotline and the Covid-19 WhatsApp support line.
