SAHPRA and Rollout to President and Deputy President

18 February 2021

SAHPRA has approved the protocol amendment of the J&J implementation study targeted at Health Care Workers (HCW) for the inclusion of the President and the Deputy President. Whilst they are not classified as HCW, this initiative would assist greatly in encouraging vaccine uptake and reduce vaccine hesitancy.

“The protocol amendment was approved subject to ethics approval obtained prior to implementation of this amendment and the additional participants signing an informed consent form prior to being vaccinated,” indicates SAHPRA CEO, Dr Boitumelo Semete- Makokotlela.
