Johnson & Johnson To Boost Africa’s COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout With 400m Doses by Mynd44: 4:05pm On Mar 30
AFRICA’S COVID-19 vaccination programme got a boost as pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson, J&J, announced it will supply up to 400 million doses of its single-shot COVID-19 vaccine to the African Union.

The supplies will help Africa reach its target of vaccinating at least 60 percent of the population, to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The African Vaccine Acquisition Trust Team, AVATT, has already signed an agreement with Johnson & Johnson for the delivery of the vaccine doses.

The agreement entails that 55 member states of the AU will take delivery, from the beginning of the third quarter of 2021, up to 200 million doses of the vaccine. Additional 180 million doses will be made available in 2022, making it a combined total of up to 400 million doses of the vaccine. Speaking on the development, Cyril Ramaphosa, South African president, who is the chairman of AVATT, said the agreement is historic and a significant milestone in the protection of the health of Africans.

“This agreement is a significant milestone in protecting the health of all Africans. It is also a powerful demonstration of African unity and of what we can achieve through a partnership between the state sector, the private sector, and international institutions that put people first,” Ramaphosa said. Alex Gorsky, chairman/CEO, Johnson & Johnson, said: “Our support for the COVAX Facility, combined with supplementary agreements with countries and regions, will help accelerate global progress toward ending the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Professor Peter Piot, said: “I’m thrilled at this agreement between J&J and the African Union which is a game-changing moment in Africa’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Combined with the 500 million doses supplied through COVAX for low and middle-income countries, this deal should ensure all African adults will receive a COVID19 vaccine. “I hope this agreement is a catalyst for further action that ensures fair and equitable access to successful COVID-19 vaccines, one of the most urgent issues we face in this pandemic.”

Instead of investing on human resources these folks are spending money on a certain chemical.

Always know this, that over 75% of African youths are none innovative, jobless and over 90% of them are technology decline.

Invest in technology today and create channels for employment not covid-19 vaccine

I heard the foreigners (Chinese, Indians e.t.c) are the one rushing the vaccine here in Nigeria while we the citizen don't really care. I hope it will not get to when there will be limited dosage and many people will start rushing it then some people will take advantage to make money from it.

That you sound knowledgeably doesn’t mean you’ve lost this particular topic. Fighting this world pandemic back to where it came from is a goal for all world powers.
go to minister of science & tech Twitter/Instagram page and level your complaints with your blown image. They might call you up but don’t forget our days of little beginning here... wink

Yes , keep those coming while other diseases are left unattended to , because covid is the only disease that matters right now , if HIV and other diseases where attended to this way I dont think we will have any problems, u guyz cant fool me even if u drag the whole world along .

The same vaccine that u cant hold any body or any company to ransome if anything happens to u chai, abeg who do dis country like dis eeeen
