Namibia Opens First Drive-Through Covid-19 Vaccination Station

Namibia has opened a drive-through COVID-19 vaccination station, which will begin operations Tuesday at the Windhoek Showgrounds

The initiative – which is powered by Gondwana Collection Namibia, the Gondwana Care Trust, FNB Namibia, Vaccines for Hope and supported by several private companies – is the first of its kind in the country.

The drive-through station will allow people to get vaccinated in the safety of their own vehicles.

The jabs will be given from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m and on a first-come, first-served basis. Exceptions will, however, be given to front-line workers who will be given priority if they arrive in uniform or in an official vehicle.

According to Gondwana’s Managing Director, Gys Joubert, only Sinopharm vaccines will be available on Tuesday but Astra Zeneca and other vaccines will be added as soon as the Ministry of Health receives those vaccines.

“In these darkest of hours, we need each other. It is in these trying times that the true character of our nation will be tested – the real fibre of our society. We need to reach out. Therefore, please bring Ouma and Oupa or your vulnerable neighbour or maybe your housekeeper’s Oupa and Ouma. We hope to make a small contribution to society’s heroes like all front line workers and emergency first responders, who might only have weekends to get vaccinated.

“If you want to help our overworked front line workers, get vaccinated. If you want to help our overflowing hospitals, get vaccinated. If you want to save lives and livelihoods, get vaccinated. If you want your children to have a better future than our current reality, get vaccinated.”
