What can I do if I have come from another country and received one dose of a vaccine there, which is not used in South Africa?

Several vaccines used globally are not yet used in South Africa, such as AstraZeneca, Moderna, Sputnik and Sinovac. Therefore, we are unable to provide
second doses of these vaccines. South Africa cannot give a vaccination certification for doses not administered here.
Instead, we can offer one dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least 6 weeks after the last vaccination dose to complete the two dose regimen, as there is evidence that the
Pfizer vaccine combines well with these other types, particularly Moderna and AstraZeneca.
If you have received one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, you are regarded as fully vaccinated.
