Welcome to your vaccination day

Get started

There are four steps in your vaccination journey

REGISTRATION

Please have your confirmation of appointment from the EVDS, V4HCW or Discovery, identity document and medical scheme membership card (where applicable) on hand.

WAITING

Pick a seat and please stay in it. We'll let you know when it's your turn to move to a vaccination station.

VACCINATION

Move to a vaccination station to get your vaccine. Please let our team know if you have any questions or start to feel unwell at any time.

OBSERVATION

Relax and take a seat and enjoy the podcasts, videos and other content we have curated for you to enjoy. You will be monitored for at least 15 minutes. We will let you know when you are able to leave.

What to expect

Mild side effects are common. Here's what to look out for.

Injection area is sore or red

Fever or chills

Headache

Fatigue

Muscle aches

Nausea

Side effects can start around 6 hours after the vaccine, peak at 24 hours and resolve in 2-3 days. If you need to, treat pain and fever with paracetamol. These side effects show your body is mounting an immune response.

Very rare side effects are anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction), blood clots or COVID arm (mild allergic reaction that presents as an itchy, red rash that is typically around where the needle entered your arm).

Seek medical care if you develop any of the following symptoms within a month of vaccination:
  1. New onset severe headache especially if with blurred vision, vomiting, weakness on one side of the body or difficulty speaking.
  2. Severe abdominal pain that does not go away.
  3. A rash of tiny red spots at the injection site.
  4. A painful or cold leg.
  5. Chest pain or shortness of breath.
