SA says term sheet signed for 9m J&J vaccine doses

South Africa’s health ministry said on Friday that the government had signed off on a term sheet for 9 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine at $10 a dose.

The ministry said in a presentation in parliament that one of the conditions for the J&J vaccine was the establishment of a no-fault compensation system for adverse events.

It added that Moderna had offered the country 200 000 doses of its Covid-19 vaccine priced at $30-$42 a dose in the second quarter, with more doses available in the third quarter.
