Sisonke Vaccine Registration Online

The Sisonke Programme is a collaboration between the National Department of Health, South African Medical Research Council, Desmond Tutu Health Foundation, CAPRISA, Janssen and Johnson & Johnson.

It allows the government to make the Ad26.COV2.S COVID-19 vaccine (JnJ vaccine) immediately available to healthcare workers using a research programme.

Sisonke is not the same as a clinical trial. Rather it is a way that research can help to make a vaccine available while the licensing process takes place.

A third wave of COVID-19 is predicted to begin in South Africa this winter. Protecting healthcare workers is a priority and so we must start vaccinating our healthcare workers before the third wave arrives.

Who Can Take Part?

To be vaccinated in a hospital you need to be :
** Age 18 and older AND
** A health care worker in the private or public service AND
** Willing and able to comply vaccination plan and other study procedures. AND

** Capable of giving electronic or personal signed informed consent as described in Appendix 5, which includes compliance with the requirements in this protocol.

To be included in a detailed sub-cohort you need to be :
** Age 18 and older AND
** Health care worker in the private or public service AND

** Willingness and ability to comply with all scheduled visits, vaccination plan, laboratory tests, and other study procedures, with follow-up at an ENSEMBLE site. AND

** Capable of giving electronic or personal signed informed consent as described in Appendix 5, which includes compliance with the requirements in this protocol.

You cannot receive the vaccine if you :
** Have any significant acute or chronic medical condition, situation or circumstance that in the opinion of the PI/designee makes the participant unsuitable for participation in the study, or jeopardises the safety or rights of the participant

** Are or may be pregnant at time of enrolment or planning within 3 months.
** Currently participate in any other research studies that would interfere with the objectives of this study.

The determination of whether participation in another study would be exclusionary for a given participant will be made by the PI/designee

** Have a history of severe adverse reaction associated with a vaccine and/or severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of the vaccine.

How It Works?

** The South African government has secured half a million doses of the vaccine from JnJ, enough to vaccinate half a million health workers.
** The first batch of 80,000 doses arrived on the 16th of February and further deliveries will follow every two weeks.

** Vaccines will be available at 17 hospitals throughout the country where teams of researchers and vaccinators will work together to deliver the vaccine to health workers up to 10 hours a day, 7 days a week.

** Research staff will be responsible for ensuring the cold chain and drawing up the correct amount of vaccine. Vaccinators will complete assessment checks, administer the vaccine and monitor you for a few minutes.

** The first step to accessing a vaccine is to register on the country’s Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS). You can access the system by visiting this website: https://vaccine.enroll.health.gov.za
