DIS-CHEM covid vaccination bookings available to all Genesis members

covid vaccination bookings

Dis-Chem has informed us that their Covid vaccination bookings portal is now live on their website.

This bookings portal is only open to medical scheme members who have successfully registered on the EVDS system. It allows medical aid members to select a booking slot at a Dis-Chem vaccination site of their choice.

For further information please click on the following link:



Must members wait until the EVDS system sends out an SMS informing them they are eligible for the second dose?

NO – this is not a requirement. Dis-Chem’s new Covid vaccination booking facility on their website allows medical scheme members to book a vaccination slot 42 days after receiving their first Pfizer vaccination dose.

Must members go to the same facility as where they received the first vaccine?

NO – members on a medical aid can choose any Dis-Chem vaccination site, even if they did not receive their first dose at a Dis-Chem.

Will walk-ins be accepted after 42 days for their second vaccine at a Dis-Chem site?

YES – they will be accepted.  Priority will however be given to those who have a booking.

Will Dis-Chem send an SMS notification to members after 42 days?

YES – members should receive an SMS from Dis-Chem, as well as the EVDS generated one.

Members are more than welcome to return to the Dis-Chem vaccination site where they received their first dose from once they receive their SMS.  This can even be done if the EVDS notification refers them to a different vaccination site.

Apart from the vaccination sites currently listed on Dis-Chem’s website, 3 additional vaccination sites will open this week. Please find the details below:

Dis-Chem is also ready to welcome all Genesis members over the age of 50 who choose to get vaccinated and are registered on the EVDS system from 1 July.  They can simply register on the Dis-Chem Covid vaccination bookings portal.

Please stay safe.

Kind regards
