- The health department won’t buy any more COVID vaccines this year. That includes Sinopharm, Sinovac and jabs for children between the ages of 5 and 11.
- If uptake of COVID vaccines doesn’t increase in time for looming expiry dates in June, millions of doses will have to be destroyed.
- How many doses could South Africa lose? 7-million. That’s more than the United States donated to us in 2021.
