Vaccines for Health Care Workers

Who is V4Hcw?

Vaccines for Health care Workers is a joint initiative driven by The Unity Forum for Family Practitioners (UFFP). The UFFP is constituted from SAMA, IPAF, ASAIPA, EMC and SAMDP. The purpose of this initiative is to assist the National Department of Health (NDOH) in identifying all healthcare workers vaccine needs and potential vaccination sites during this crisis period, and to ensure that the Covid-19 vaccine reaches every Medical Practitioner (GP), Out of Hospital Healthcare Worker and Supporting Staff Member within South Africa. V4hcw therefore created a platform for all Healthcare Workers to facilitate fast and effective distribution as well as a booking system to assist with all front-line healthcare workers scheduling system for their vaccinations.

Become a Volunteer

Our country plans to vaccinate 40 million South Africans to reach population immunity over the next few months. The National Department of Health has secured vaccines for the program to start in May 2021. We urgently require volunteers to help vaccinate our country! The Volunteer registration portal creates the link between, the volunteer and a vaccination site, to help staff a facility, ensuring maximum throughput of that facility.
Your assistance is greatly needed and appreciated.

Register your site as a Vaccination Site

V4hcw encourage general practitioners to register their site as a Vaccination Site. With more sites registered across the country, we can ensure the effective distribution of vaccines to all citizens. Become part of the V4hcw Family by registering your site today and start to make a difference within your direct community.

Why register?

Unfortunately, there is no single database of each GP in private practice in SA. Although there are many fragmented databases, such as the HPCSA, BHF, and doctor organisations, there are many physicians that do not belong to any single organisation, making it impossible to quantify the number of GPs in private practice, their number of staff including their location. This, in turn, may result in many GPs not receiving the Covid-19 vaccine and threaten their well-being.

In order to assist the National Department of Health (NDOH) during this crisis period, and to ensure that the Covid-19 vaccine reaches every GP in private practice once received in South Africa by the NDOH a single database is required. The Unity Forum for Family Practitioners (UFFP) together with other GP-representing organisations in South Africa has joined forces in creating an effective data platform to collect information of all GPs voluntarily. This single database will enable the NDOH to distribute the Covid-19 vaccines quickly and effectively to all front-line workers.

The Vaccines for Health care Workers, would appreciate if you can kindly provide us with your information by entering the required details needed on this page. Your practice details are also needed for verification purposes.

The Vaccines for Health Care Workers hereby confirm that the data provided on this database will only be shared with the NDOH to ensure every GP receives their Covid-19 vaccine as soon as it arrives in South Africa.

The Consortium will also be able to follow up and track where GPs are still in need or have been missed.


Vaccines for Healthcare workers (V4HCW), in agreement with the NDOH and SAMRC, have offered to assist all Medical Practitioners and all eligible groups and associations to provide a platform to register and book for their vaccines. We have opened up our platforms and implemented solutions for all Medical Practitioners and non-hospital associations to collate, risk stratify and offer equitable distribution of vaccines across South Africa. Registration on our platform is open for the following parties:- Medical Practitioners (GP), Out of Hospital Vaccinations – Healthcare Workers and Supporting Staff Members. If you wish to become a vaccination site or a volunteer please also register on our platform.

*The registration page is optimised for use on a personal computer, any users experiencing problems using mobile devices during registration is advise to use a personal computer.
