How to register for the vaccination

Everybody, including individuals with private healthcare cover, needs to register on the Government’s Electronic Vaccine Data System (EVDS) before you receive your vaccine. Healthcare workers and all people 35 years and older who haven’t yet registered are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. Registering is easy and can be done in any one of the following ways:


Online on Electronic Vaccine Data System (EVDS). Using any device with internet access, such as your cell phone or laptop, go to https://vaccine.enroll.health.gov.za/#/ and follow the prompts to register for the vaccine.

2. WhatsApp

Send the word REGISTER to 0600 123 456. Follow the instructions and enter all the information that is requested. You will need your identity number (South African identity number, passport number, asylum seeker number or refugee number). Enter your location (home or work). If you’re a member of a medical aid you will need your medical aid name and number.

3. SMS

You can dial *134*832*IDNumber#. Or for no ID number, dial *134*832#. Free on all South African mobile networks.

14. Telephone

Call the COVID-19 hotline on 0800 029 999.

Once you've registered on the EVDS system, you’ll receive an SMS confirming your registration. Depending on your eligibility in terms of the rollout programme, you’ll be issued with a vaccine code and information on when and where to go for your vaccination. Please note that you will not be able to receive your vaccination without the vaccine code.

Remember, the approach to vaccinations is a phased one, and the SMS providing details of your scheduled vaccination will only be sent when it is your turn to be vaccinated.

What to bring when getting vaccinated

On the day you get vaccinated, remember to take:

  • your cell phone with the code you received through an SMS
  • your ID document or driver’s license or passport (for non-RSA citizens)
  • your medical aid information (if you have medical aid)
  • proof of employment (e.g. access card) for health care workers
