Good news for some undocumented foreigners in South Africa

There is great news for the undocumented foreign nationals and those undocumented local residents in South Africa regarding the Covid-19 vaccination drive.

This is after it was revealed that both classes of residents can get vaccinated without fear of getting arrested or being sold out to the authorities. As the vaccination drive has been ongoing, the undocumented foreigners are reported to have been afraid to get vaccinated for fear of having their details forwarded to the immigration authorities.

There is the Denid Hurley Centre which was selected by the department of health to lead the vaccination drive of all those who are unvaccinated in Cape Town. The representative of the center Raymond Perrier assured that not having documents in South Africa should not be a stumbling block towards getting vaccinated.

He added that they would only need to submit their date of birth and names. The information is private and confidential. As a result, it stays with the Health ministry and is not shared with any government department, hence there is no need to be skeptical. A call has therefore been made to the undocumented to step forward and get vaccinated against the pandemic. This means that those who may have lost their passports or any form of identification can take advantage of the initiative and step forward to get vaccinated.

The initiative is aimed at being beneficial to undocumented foreign nationals and those homeless and undocumented residents. Since the organization works with these people, it will be easy for them to the trusted.

The organization is in collaboration with different sectors to assist in convincing undocumented foreign nationals and the homeless to step forward and get vaccinated. Those who want to get vaccinated can reach out to the organization and get the help they need without any fear of deportation.
