As the first batch of vaccines reaches South African shores and frontline health workers get ready to receive the jab, it feels like we’re finally inching towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
To say it has been a tough year for medical professionals is an understatement to end all understatements, which is why LocumBase stands ready to support rollout efforts by linking you, as medical professionals, to the official government vaccine list while providing the most up-to-date, credible information you need to know.
At the time of writing South Africa officially recorded more than 1.49 million coronavirus cases, the most in Africa. After healthcare workers, the task of getting the vaccine into the arms of almost 59 million South Africans will be a truly mammoth effort, and one that requires medical professionals to be at the right place at the right time to get the job done – something that LocumBase was born ready to do.
The Covid-19 vaccine rollout will be the biggest healthcare undertaking of our lifetimes. President Cyril Ramaphosa has called it the largest and most complex logistical undertaking in South Africa’s history. Vaccines will be administered through hospitals, clinics, outreach services, and mobile clinics, as well as private settings such as doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and various places of work.
We’re looking forward to playing a part in making this process a success using our innovative technology that connects medical professionals to where they’re needed, especially at this crucial time. Of course, if you haven’t already, the first step is to sign up on LocumBase and complete your profile. After this, you can rest assured you’ll have access to a platform that creates a supportive ecosystem to empower medical professionals and practices.
