Discovery COVID-19 Vaccine Registration
In support of the National Department of Health’s vaccine rollout strategy for healthcare workers and healthcare practice staff in South Africa, we are facilitating the compilation of a central database to ensure rapid access to COVID-19 vaccines.

This information will be used to support the distribution planning for vaccine stock, as well as to arrange for vaccination delivery and the required consent. All healthcare professionals and practice staff associated with the practice should provide their details to ensure access to the vaccine.
Register your details by logging in and completing the relevant fields for all healthcare workers and practice staff in your practice.
How to Register?
Register for your COVID-19 vaccine on the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Navigator. When you do this, you will automatically be registered on the national Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) to make the process easier for you.
Once you have registered we will support you with all the information you need at every step of your vaccination journey.
You will receive communication with your appointment confirmation from the EVDS, V4HCW or Discovery. You must present this confirmation of appointment on the day of your scheduled vaccination.
We need your help to ensure the seamless vaccination of the elderly in South Africa. Please help your loved ones who are Discovery clients, especially if they are not digitally enabled, to complete their registration on the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Portal.
If you have already registered your details with us :
The data we have received from healthcare professionals who have completed the registration process on our website has been shared with the National Department of Health (NDoH).
The NDoH will be uploading this into their Electronic Vaccine Data Base System(EVDS).
As a registered healthcare professional or practice staff member you may, in the next few days, receive a notification that you have been auto-registered onto the EVDS through this upload process. Thereafter, you will be able to log into the EVDS portal and view or edit your registration data.
1. When will I receive my invitation to register?
To make sure that we prioritize and protect our elderly and high-risk clients, we are taking a stepwise approach to registration on the Discovery COVID-19 Vaccination Navigator.
We will send out personalised invitations during the next month as registration eligibility opens.
2. Do I also have to register on the national Electronic Vaccine Data(EVDS) system?
No, if you are a Discovery client by registering on Discovery’s COVID-19 Vaccination Navigator you will automatically be registered on the national Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) to make the process easier for you.
All South Africans, who are not Discovery clients, must register on the national Electronic Vaccination Data System directly
