Ahmed Kathrada Private Hospital Commences Rollout of the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 Vaccine

Lenmed’s Ahmed Kathrada Private Hospital in the South of Johannesburg proudly joins the first group of private hospitals nominated by the National Department of Health (NDoH) to be a vaccination site. The facility was chosen based on its capacity for and history of successfully treating the most COVID-19 patients in the province to date.

As part of the national vaccination rollout strategy implemented by the NDoH, Ahmed Kathrada Private Hospital will only be vaccinating its own healthcare workers and those of two defined private facilities in its immediate vicinity. Healthcare workers who work on the frontline in COVID- 19 areas of the hospital and perform high risk procedures will be prioritised due to the limited quantity of vaccines available. Vaccinations are not open to the general public at this stage.
