Only 5% of South Africans, who are eligible, have already received a Covid-19 booster dose.

This refers to those who have had a third injection of the Pfizer vaccine, or their second dose of the Johnson & Johnson injection.

Prof. Barry Schoub, member of the Vaccine Ministerial Advisory Committee, says a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine is needed to further protect people against serious forms of Covid-19.

Schoub spoke to ENCA and says it seems that people may have to go for a booster dose, on a regular basis, as the pandemic continues to develop.
