JOIN OUR VACCINATION DRIVE!
A CVRTT INITIATIVE
In response to the government strategy through the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and Higher Health to increase the availability of the number of sites for the vaccination of the adult population by March 2022, Rhodes University opened an outreach site at the Gavin Relly Postgraduate Village on campus on 20 July 2021.
According to the framework set out by Higher Health, once all the Rhodes University staff and students eligible for vaccination under the current national rollout plan have been vaccinated, family members and the greater Makhanda community will be vaccinated.
Members of staff and students who are eligible to be vaccinated must register on the official Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) self-registration portal - https://vaccine.enroll.health.

CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE TASK TEAM
Rhodes University’s Coronavirus Response Task Team (CVRTT) was formed to address the challenges that might arise should there be a suspected or confirmed case at Rhodes University and to develop and implement an action plan to respond to the risks of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
We are taking steps to ensure every possible challenge is being addressed. We are actively and closely monitoring the situation and making appropriate arrangements to mitigate its impact on the health, welfare and safety of our students and staff.
Regular information will be shared with the community as the situation continues to change and develop. The current situation in respect of COVID-19 is extremely fluid and changes daily. Please be alert to any updates distributed by the University.
The Task Team can be contacted on email@example.com.
The University has, since reopening in 2022, implemented a vaccine mandate approved by Council as a condition for entry onto campus for all staff, students, and visitors as part of a full and safe return to campus. Approximately 98 percent of the university community (including staff and students) have since been vaccinated, and the University has incrementally returned to normal operations.
The University’s objective is to achieve a full return to normal on-campus activities, balanced with the protection of the health and safety of Rhodes University and the greater Makhanda communities.
