Sahpra probing adverse reactions faced by recipients of the Covid-19 vaccine
Previously, Briefly News reported that there are reportedly adverse effects being faced by those who have received the Covid-19 vaccine and the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (Sahpra) is investigating the reactions.
Sahpra is probing a breakout in infections in people who have already been vaccinated. The authority briefed Parliament's Health Committee on Wednesday, stating that one of its mandates was to make sure that those who have applied for the vaccine have the ability to both record and report any side effects.
CEO of Sahpra Tumi Smete-Makokotlela stated that they were monitoring what they deemed "adverse events following immunisation" after various reports of side-effects. Mokokotlela stated that there are causality studies going on.
