Clicks will be offering the vaccinations as per the DOH supply, starting with the Pfizer vaccine. The Clicks Group’s wholesale division United Pharmaceutical Distributors (UPD) will store the Pfizer vaccines and transport them to selected Clicks Pharmacies.
Individuals who have registered on the DOH’s Electronic Vaccination Data System’s (EVDS) online portal will receive a text message from EVDS with a unique vaccination voucher for presentation at the vaccination site, along with their ID and medical aid details, if applicable. It is important to note that the DOH will determine the exact vaccination site and time and communicate this via text message.
The cost of the vaccine will be in line with the DOH’s prescribed guidelines. If you are a member of a medical aid, contact your medical scheme to confirm payment options.
