VACCINE WRAP | Western Cape's J&J doses running low, warning over bogus vaccines
A total of 23,130 Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been administered out of the 25,960 vaccines received by the province to date as part of the Sisonke implementation study.
This is according to the latest data published by the Western Cape Government on Friday 12 March.
The updated figures show that the limited Sisonke vaccine supply is rapidly dwindling.
Health authorities in the province commemorated the anniversary of the first Covid-19 case in the Western Cape this week.
But with a limited number of vaccines are currently available across the country, members of the public have raised concerns about the slow pace of vaccinations.
