Health Minister Zweli Mkhize says government have managed to successfully secure 9 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, with the delivery of the first batch of 80,000 on course.

Mkhize has been addressing MP’s on the 2021 State of the Nation Address Debate.

The minister also denied that they are returning the 1 million AstraZeneca doses they received from the Serum Institute of India.

This follows earlier reports that the country would send back the consignment they got a few weeks ago to inoculate communities.

Mkhize says the vaccination is due to begin this week.
