Children are up for vaccination trial

Cyril Ramaphosa approves that children are the next to go and vaccinate. This vaccine will protect children from the chances of getting infected with Covid 19.

Will parents who are not vaccinated stop their hildren also not to vaccinate?

JOHANNESBURG - South Africa is one of five countries to participate in the global children's vaccine trial.


SAHPRA and the World Health Organisation have approved the trial.

Some 2,000 South African children are taking part in the trial, with children aged between six months and 17 years.


The first child will be inoculated in Pretoria on Friday.

The global trial will enrol 14,000 children.

It is being conducted by a Pretoria company for Chinese vaccine manufacturer, Sinovac.

The children will receive two doses, 28 days apart.

We have seen how the vaccine has affected a lot of people and some have changed their minds about vaccinating will this also happen to child?
