COVID-19 vaccine availability
You cannot choose which vaccine you receive, as it depends on which vaccine is available at the time. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single dose, and the Pfizer vaccine is a two-dose vaccine. When you go for your vaccine at your allocated vaccination centre, you’ll be informed which vaccine you’ll receive. You will also be notified whether you need a second dose and when to revisit the centre.
If you’ve already been vaccinated with the first Pfizer vaccine does, you’ll need to make a booking to receive your second dose after 42 days.
It’s important that you go for your vaccination at your scheduled appointment time. We would also like to encourage you to assist your family members who are eligible for the vaccine to register and go for their vaccination. We all need to work together to contribute to the success of the vaccination rollout, to lower the infection rates in South Africa. Get an injection of life today!
