Old Mutual joined forces with leading healthcare provider Netcare to open a private vaccination centre at the insurer’s campus in Pinelands, Cape Town.
The facility will have an initial capacity of about 1 400 vaccinations per day, which will be ramped up to 3 000 vaccinations per day.
Western Cape Premier Alan Winde, who officially opened the centre today, said: “At the start of the mass vaccination programme on 17 May, I committed the Western Cape Government to a successful vaccine rollout that would provide everyone with an opportunity to be vaccinated.
“We are doing this by opening sites across the metro and province, as well as assisting in the rollout of private sites. We’re also vaccinating residents in old age homes and bed-ridden citizens at their homes.“
