Media Release:  GRDM Deputy Executive Mayor gets vaccinated

06 July 2016
For immediate release

The Garden Route District Municipality’s  (GRDM) Deputy Executive Mayor, Alderlady Rosina Ruiters, was one of the first 50 years plus residents of Mossel Bay to receive a Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, 1 July 2021.

According to a very excited Alderlady Ruiters, the overall process from start to finish went very well-ordered. “I need to comment the Western Cape Department of Health for the smooth, professional and safe manner in which the vaccination process was conducted. No long lines, with friendly, tolerant and helpful staff, skilled to make everybody feel at ease,” she said.

Alderlady Ruiters urges residents in the District who are 50 years and older, who have not registered on the EVDS system yet, to please do so.  The SMS appointment notifications to people over the age of 50 who have successfully registered had commenced on Friday, 2 July 2021, and scheduled appointments followed from Monday, 5 July 2021.

Let us all work together towards flattening the curve of the wave by protecting ourselves and others – wearing a mask in public, wash hands regularly with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitiser.  Always keep a safe distance and, where possible, avoid crowded places.
