SAOPA Register – COVID Vaccination Risk Categories

Dear Colleagues,

The South African Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (SAOPA) is compiling a registry to prioritise risk levels regarding expose to the Covid-19 virus.

This by no means replaces the existing national register, but serves to act alongside it in the case of additional vaccines becoming available and needing to act quickly.

Please note that regardless of your risk level, you will not be considered for vaccination if you have not registered on the Health Department’s Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) at

(This is the centralised registry which includes lists from Discovery, HPCSA, etc).

Please click the link provided to capture your details on the SAOPA Register.
