The African Unions special envoy for Covid-19 has said that the continent will finally start receiving doses of the lifesaving Johnson & Johnson vaccine next week, as the virus continues to spread there.
Speaking on Thursday, Strive Masiyiwa, the African Union’s coordinator on Covid-19 vaccines said that around six million doses will be delivered to 27 nations in the weeks up to the end of August.
The shots will only be delivered to the nations who have paid up and marks the first shipment of 400 million vaccines from the American pharma giant. The one-shot vaccine is expected to account for half of Africa’s inoculation requirements.
Masiyiwa stated that deliveries will reach 10 million jabs a month by September and this will further increase to 20 million shots a month in January. By September 2022, the order of 400 million jabs is expected to have been fulfilled. Some of the J&J shots will come from an Aspen Pharmacare facility in South Africa, Masiyiwa noted.
