Northern and Tygerberg healthcare workers bring “Woema” to weekend vaccinations

1 October 2021

This coming weekend, the Northern and Tygerberg health teams will be ramping up their vaccination outreach programmes as part of the National VOOMA Vaccination weekend. 

“Vooma” is derived from the Afrikaans  word “woema” meaning  ‘energy and speed’. It also resembles the Nguni word ”vuma” meaning ‘agree’.  This is what we hope to achieve: Agreement to move with energy and speed to vaccinate as many people as possible by Christmas.


Community members in the Northern and Tygerberg areas, who are 18 years and older and who have not been vaccinated yet, are encouraged to visit the following vaccination sites. Please bring your ID or passport if you can. Assisted registration will be provided onsite.
