Prof Schoub: ‘Rollout needs to resume as soon as possible’

South Africa

Johannesburg – Professor Barry Schoub says the country needs to resume its Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine rollout as soon as possible.

The rollout ground to a halt after several people overseas developed rare blood clots and died.

The government lifted the supervision on Thursday, but there’s not word on when vaccinations will resume.

Schoub, who is heading up the Covid-19 Ministerial Committee, said the government will be monitoring any adverse side effects of the vaccine as more research is done.
