Not necessarily. Your 2nd dose appointment may not be where your first appointment was as the programme is adapting and the active vaccination sites may change over time. You will instead receive an SMS sending you to the site that has the shortest queue within your registered area.

However, if you have access to the Internet, and the second appointment you receive does not suit you, you can choose when and where to get the second vaccine or change your vaccination appointment. To do this:

  •   Go to https://vaccine.booking.health.gov.za
  •   Make sure you have the ID, non-RSA Passport number or Asylum Seeker/Refugee Number you used to register.
  •   You will need to be able to receive a one-time pin (OTP SMS) on the cellphone number you used when you registered.

You can also call 0800 029 999 to make or change a booking for your vaccination.
