So I estimate it takes on average 20 minutes per person. Local pharmacies does not have the space to have 10 or 20 people sit for 15 minutes after the vaccination.

    At Steve Biko, a large hall with a clock is used where everyone sits after their vaccine. I suspect they will identify places like school halls, church venues, maybe parking terrains of hospitals and churches. I think the idea of the registration is to a) get a more accurate idea of quantity of vaccine doses needed b) determine how many people in for instance Moreletta park wants a vaccine and then identify a venue in Moreletta park where vaccination stations can be set up.

    Point B makes it really odd that one cannot select your area more accurately.

    But then I am speculating and I am certain to be corrected soon.

    It is not just the COVID vaccine. Many, if not most, vaccines can result in anaphylaxis.

    Peter, I really would not worry too much about anaphylaxis here. As said all vaccines and huge numbers of commonly taken medications and medical treatments can result in anaphylaxis. This includes things like bee stings. Those truly highly susceptible to anaphylaxis would usually have been issued with an Epipen by their doctors, for emergency injection for anaphylactic collapse and shock.

    I think you have grabbed the slightly wrong end of the stick here, don't worry.

    Ok all sorted, turns out it's a browser problem, Safari on Mac worked just fine and so does Chrome. Very weird that it doesn't show all suburbs if using MS Edge, must be a bug.

    Yes I think they'll opt for places with open space to use as holding areas rather than small pharmacies, school halls, churches etc. maybe even tents in shopping center parking lots if the center will allow. Here's hoping we actually get the promised vaccines in time and that they allow the private sector to run with it.

    For myself I'm bargaining on this time next year.

    Bruce I honestly wish it was that easy. Below is a post of a very good friend of mine in January.

    "Dit is dag 7 van my Covid 19 proses. Ek het regtig swaar gekry maak geen fout nie. Teen gisteroggend was my koors gereeld 37.5 en eenkeer 38.1. Ek het erge lyfseer en hoofpyn op konstante basis gehad. Ek het gister 15h00 my eerste dosis Ivermectin geneem ( saam met die ander meds wat die dr voorgeskryf het.) Vandag dosis 2 en more die laaste. My koors het stelselmatig geval tot 36.0 en ek voel oor die algemeen baie beter - binne 24 uur! My hoesbuie is ook minder. Kom ons kyk more na die 3e dosis."

    Three days later he was dead, probably had nothing to do with the Ivermectin other than it made him feel better regardless of how bad he really was.
    This is serious take as much care as possible, the vaccine will not make you grow boobs so take it, your friends and family don't need a dead Rambo. I will be doing so not because I am afraid of dying but I have family and grand children that can do with me being around

    For some who may be interested, perhaps Peter.

    In SOuth Africa, 288 000 healthcare workers vaccinated so far with J and J/Janssen vaccine.
    2,1% reported any adverse event, of which 42% were minor local reactions to the injection ,eg pain, redness or some swelling. 80% of the reports (ie 1.7% of people vaccinated) related to minor systemic reactions eg heache/aches, mild fever.
    There was one case of anaphylaxis reported in South Africa, giving a study rate of 0.3 per 100 000.
    2 cases of blood clots, 0.001% reported. Looking at the data, neither of these represent the severe clotting disorder much talked about, and both are likely coincidental occurrences.
    Of all reported adverse events, 50 (from 288 000 patients) were considered serious, though this of course does not imply vaccine causality: if I look through the list some are clearly not vaccine related!

    A total of 46 of the 288 000 patients have contracted covid, but only 17 of these were at least 14 days after the injection (ie breakthrough infection by definition). Only 3 COVID infections have occurred 28 days or more after vaccination.
    Of the 288 000 HCW's vaccinated, there have been 7 deaths post vaccination. None of these were vaccine related, and three were from covid contracted within a week of the vaccine administration.

    Note: all above is SA usage of J and J vaccine.
    From the published paper I received.

    Open label single arm phase 3B implementatinon study, cumulative safety SUmmary Report 12 March to 12 APril 2021, Glenda Gray, Linda-Gail Bekker, Ameena Goga and Nigel Garrett.

    Conclusion: I and all my staff have been vaccinated and are delighted that we did.

    PS: severe thrombosis I think around 9 cases in 11 million vaccinees or similar in US< seems perhaps to be a major concern if young female who has received certain anticoagulants recently......

    Hope this helps some sitting on the fence.

    Ian, I'm one of the fence sitters. I read, I digest, I doubt, I vacillate.

    Nevertheless, I registered. Got the sms within an hour.

    I also think it might be some time before all concerned get their ducks in a row, so I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

    SWAMBO did get her e mail for Discovery portal. Interestingly she was able to register me at the same time. She is a bit older and earlier in alphabet. One of these resulted her getting an e mail earlier. Easy to fill in. Just answer all questions YES or NO to allow registration.

    Discovery has 3 groupings: Over 70, 60 to 69 and below 60. Expected start 17th of May.

    Does any one else see the irony that the registration is online and that majority of over 60ties in SA don't have access to internet ?

    Those who are on Discovery or have registered somebody else and is over 60 can go to Discovery site and register into their system. There is a link on the main page. No need to wait e mail. With one logging all members on the same plan that are over 60 can be registered. Just look for a link "Who else you wish to register"

    Discovery splits over 60 people to 3 groups based on the age but they also ask if there are know issues.

    I got my Discovery email today >> We both have Nos so we can follow our progress up the line on the Portal >> my Wife''s no is totally different to mine I guess because she is Priority over me as she has Health concerns Also I am in the 70 plus age group and she is in the 60-69 group by a long way below me>>So glad a bit of light at the end of the Tunnel as we have booked in Kruger from end Aug and must be done by then. Discovery are doing/organising ours so will be MUCH faster and more diversified with suitable multi nearby locations than what the Health care workers had being organised by the Govt Health Dept

    I registered and received confirmation but the vaccine? I will believe it when I see it; whenever that might be.
