SA suspends J&J vaccine rollout amid blood clot concerns

South Africa is suspending the rollout of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine over blood clot concerns.

But the South African Medical Association says there’s no need for panic. Its head, Dr Angelique Coetzee, says she’s been vaccinated and is not worried as the risk of clotting is low.

The suspension follows concerns from America’s Health Authorities about potential clots developed in patients who have been vaccinated.
