America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it will approve the release of two batches of J&J vaccine drug substance for emergency use.
The substance is used to manufacture the COVID-19 vaccine.
The batches were produced at a Baltimore facility, which has been under investigation for contamination.
The FDA says it’s satisfied that these two batches are safe for use, and the release is a critical step to increase the availability of the much-needed J&J vaccine worldwide.
The FDA says it has determined that several other batches are, however, not suitable for use.
It’s not yet clear whether this will affect the two million doses of J&J vaccines at Aspen’s production facility in Gqeberha.
The Health Ministry says it’s awaiting an official statement from the FDA before commenting on the matter.
Meanwhile, eNCA’s Washington correspondent Simon Marks said the New York Times is reporting that 60 million doses must be destroyed.
