President Cyril Ramaphosa says the country’s teachers could expect to receive their Covid-19 vaccination over the next few weeks.
He says millions more doses of Covid-19 vaccines are expected to reach the country soon.
Ramaphosa says the local production of vaccines – at the Aspen Pharmacare facility in the Eastern Cape – would now be ramped up.
He says the 2-million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine – which had to be destroyed due to contamination – will also be replaced by the company.
