The circular further states that individuals can be vaccinated at the request of the presidency, the minister of health or the director-general for the department of health.
“Individuals who have received their one dose of Pfizer vaccine outside SA more than 42 days ago will be eligible to receive a second dose of the vaccine,” reads the circular.
It states that requests for vaccination should be submitted to the department of health by email with supporting documents.
“This documentation may include, but not limited to, visa, work or study permit for country to which individual is travelling to, letter from employer, institution of study or sport federation, affidavit signed by commissioner of oaths.
“Embassy staff based in SA, as well as individuals working for the UN and other international agencies, will be vaccinated in line with the national vaccination programme eligibility criteria. However these individuals will receive priority, and their vaccination will be expedited,” reads the circular.
