Teachers waiting on FDA to see if they will approve the release of Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

 The country‚Äôs teachers are waiting on the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) closely this week as it pondered whether to approve and release millions of doses of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine.

The regulator is expected to give an update on manufacturing conditions at a US factory that had to stop the release of vast batches of the vaccine.

According to IOL there are suspicions it had been contaminated by the AstraZeneca shot. Among those vials are 480,000 shots that had been earmarked for South Africa's educators.

But the clock is ticking as the doses will expire later this month. Crisp said that they had planned extensively to roll out the vaccine quickly and he was sure that they would be able to administer all of them if they arrived on time.

The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (Sahpra) also said that it was awaiting feedback from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over the safety of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
