Isuzu South Africa (SA) is again at the forefront of private sector support for government healthcare services in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa.


Today Isuzu SA ensured the refurbished site at the Provincial Hospital in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) is ready to service the local community as a vaccination centre. Isuzu SA undertook and funded refurbishments of an old casualty ward of the hospital.

Vaccination shots were provided to members of the Gqeberha community today at the newly refurbished facility. The vaccination centre consists of consulting, administration and waiting rooms.

Ms. Sigcawu said it was important for Isuzu SA to ensure the site was ready in time for the second phase of government’s the vaccination role-out.

“This Isuzu SA initiative forms part of a larger Covid-19 response strategy that began last year. This included, but not limited to, vehicle support to various organisations at the frontline of fighting the Covid-19 epidemic, logistics and storage support, refurbishment projects, as well as community support in assisting with basic needs such as food and water,” she said.
