Health Minister Zweli Mkhize said on Sunday the government would await advice from scientists on how best to proceed, after disappointing results in a trial conducted by the University ofthe Witwatersrand.

The government had intended to roll the AstraZeneca shot out to healthcare workers soon, after receiving 1 million doses produced by the Serum Institute of India on Monday.

“The AstraZeneca vaccine will remain with us … up until the scientists give us clear indications as to what we need to do,” he added.

As reported by GreatGameIndia earlier, Switzerland has rejected the AstraZeneca Oxford COVID-19 vaccine due to lack of sufficient data.

Swissmedic, Switzerland’s authority for medicines and medical devices, said, “The data currently available do not point to a positive decision regarding benefits and risks.”

Many European countries have decided not to use AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for people over 65. This decision as well was made due to the lack of data available about its effectiveness in elderly people.

According to a report by Germany’s Standing Vaccination Commission, the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is only effective 8% in people over 65.

According to a new survey more than half of Americans do not want COVID-19 vaccine. The study has also looked into the concerns among people reluctant to receive the jabs, with 68 per cent of people saying they are worried about the long term effects of the vaccines.

  1. After all, as no such virus or disease as covid exists, a vaccine bottle can be simple saline solution. All this global control is the sovereign crime. Trash them all and wage war on the criminals suhc as William Gates (Gates Foundation),
    IMF/World Bank, WEF.

  2. china is trying to invade india……..dam disaster might be HAARP DEW from tibet….wake up now and bomb the PLA out of tibet and kashgar entirely as these snakes dont give two hoots about spilling blood

  3. Gates, who has $23m of shares in Monsanto, is responsible for widespread vaccination programs which have been linked to the Ebola outbreak. GMOs and vaccinations have both been linked to human illness and death, even though Big Pharma and Big Ag continue to ignore certain undeniable correlations.

    Let’s ask ourselves this: If Gates is focused on his goal of reducing the number of people on our planet, why would he then fund vaccination programs to save lives? None of this makes any sense, unless the vaccinations are not meant to save lives at all.

    **** Bill Gates and Melinda Gates ought to be banned from every country in the world.
