Pharmacy retailer Clicks now has a list of clinics and pharmacies authorised to act as vaccination centres, after registering them with the national department of health.
These locations are now available for selection on the health department’s Electronic Vaccination Data System, when registering to receive a coronavirus vaccine.

- Norkem Mall
- Northmead Square
- Benoni Lake

The government began administering shots three weeks ago, with a focus on some 1.2 million healthcare workers in the first phase.
In phase two, other essential workers, the elderly, and those over 18 living with co-morbidities, plus those in congregate settings, are due to get vaccinated. And in the final phase, the government aims to vaccinate an additional 22.5 million members of the population who do not make any of those priority lists.
All vaccinations will be given upon producing proof of an electronic voucher from the national department of health and an ID document.
"We are working closely with the national department of health via the B4SA (Business for South Africa) work streams," said Rachel Wrigglesworth, Clicks’ chief commercial officer.
"We have offered our experience and proven capability in vaccination services to government and are ready to support them with South Africa's Covid-19 vaccine rollout plan."
“Furthermore, all of our healthcare workers have been registered so they can be prioritised for vaccination as part of phase one of the national department of health directive.”
Last year the retailer said it was ideally placed to support the government in the rollout and said it has capacity, through its distributor and wholesaler UPD, to disseminate the shots.
UPD has distributed vaccines to pharmacies, clinics and private hospitals in compliance with cold chain requirements, Clicks said at the time.
