Vaccines for Health Care Workers

Who is V4hcw?

Vaccines for Health care Workers is a joint initiative driven by The Unity Forum for Family Practitioners (UFFP). The UFFP is constituted from SAMA, IPAF, ASAIPA, EMC, and SAMDP and so represents majority of General Practitioners in South Africa. The purpose of this initiative is to assist the National Department of Health (NDOH) in identifying healthcare worker vaccine needs and potential vaccination sites during this crisis period, and to ensure that the Covid-19 vaccine reaches every GP in private practice, once received in South Africa by the NDOH. We are therefore creating a single database of all GPs in private practice to facilitate fast and effective distribution to all front-line workers in this pandemic.

Why register?

Unfortunately, there is no single database of each GP in private practice in SA. Although there are many fragmented databases, such as the HPCSA, BHF, and doctor organisations, there are many physicians that do not belong to any single organisation, making it impossible to quantify the number of GPs in private practice, their number of staff including their location. This, in turn, may result in many GPs not receiving the Covid-19 vaccine and threaten their well-being.

In order to assist the National Department of Health (NDOH) during this crisis period, and to ensure that the Covid-19 vaccine reaches every GP in private practice once received in South Africa by the NDOH a single database is required. The Unity Forum for Family Practitioners (UFFP) together with other GP-representing organisations in South Africa has joined forces in creating an effective data platform to collect information of all GPs voluntarily. This single database will enable the NDOH to distribute the Covid-19 vaccines quickly and effectively to all front-line workers.

The Vaccines for Health care Workers, would appreciate if you can kindly provide us with your information by entering the required details needed on this page. Your practice details are also needed for verification purposes.

The Vaccines for Health Care Workers hereby confirm that the data provided on this database will only be shared with the NDOH to ensure every GP receives their Covid-19 vaccine as soon as it arrives in South Africa.

The Consortium will also be able to follow up and track where GPs are still in need or have been missed.

Register for your Vaccination.

In order to capture your practice location, and vaccine prioritisation needs, we need to capture some details about your practice, you and your staff.

Location information will be key for reporting to the National Database for vaccine dissemination, as will be the number staff and any vulnerabilities which exist in your practice.

V4HCW is also seeking to understand how many GP practices will be willing to participate in the Phases 2 and 3 or vaccine roll-out to the public, by providing vaccinations at their practices.

This initiative is only for GP`s and their direct supporting staff members within private practice. In the instance where you are not a GP and wish to register, please contact your Council or Governing Body directly for assistance.

*The registration page is optimised for use on a personal computer, any users experiencing problems using mobile devices during registration is advise to use a personal computer.
