Nehawu welcomes SA – Pfizer vaccine deal

Nehawu has welcomed the Health Department’s signing of a crucial contract with US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer that will see South Africa receive 20 million vaccine doses. The Business Day is reporting that delivery is expected from the middle of the month. Last month, Cabinet announced that the country’s second phase of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout would begin in May, targeting over 13 million people. Together with the Johnson & Johnson agreement for 30 million vaccines, the scene is finally set for South Africa to begin the rollout of the country’s vaccine programme.
