TWO TIPS to help you to login

Once logged in, you will be able to access your medical scheme profile (and any dependants' profiles too) and explore the full range of support offered to you though the Discovery's COVID-19 Vaccination Navigator.

You can:

  • Register yourself and your dependants for COVID-19 vaccines. This is particularly helpful if you want to register and elderly loved one on your policy for their vaccine.
  • Know what to expect from and how to prepare for your COVID-19 vaccination
  • Get reminders ahead of your second vaccine dose (in the case of a two-dose vaccine)
  • Access your electronic vaccination card.
  • Share any vaccine-related side-effects in the days after your vaccination, to get support and guided as to your next steps.
    • Vaccines are a form of medicine. Like all medicine, vaccines (not only COVID-19 vaccines, but all vaccines) can cause side-effects. Most are mild and short-lived. Some people get them, some don't. Discovery's COVID-19 Vaccination Portal lets you report any vaccine side-effects and supports you as to how to respond to these.

Who can register on the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Portal?

All Discovery clients, including those clients who are not members of medical schemes administered by Discovery Health, have access to the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Portal. You have to be over 18 years of age to register.

Important details about your COVID-19 vaccination

  • Once eligible for your COVID-19 vaccination you will receive an SMS with your EVDS vaccine code and the name of the vaccination site you have been allocated to for your COVID-19 vaccine. If you would like to change the site you are allocated to, you can do so on Connected Care using the COVID-19 Vaccination Navigator.
  • If you are scheduled for your COVID-19 vaccine, but miss your vaccine appointment or want to reschedule it, you will have two more opportunities to do so.
  • Some people are concerned about how elderly loved ones in care facilities - such as frail care and old age homes - will access their COVID-19 vaccines. Once they have been registered for their vaccine on the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Portal, dedicated teams will visit the care facility and vaccinate registered residents.
  • Visit the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Portal or access our WhatsApp service to get instant answers to any questions you may have.
