Pregnant and breastfeeding women may now get J&J vaccine

Pregnant and lactating women

The medicines regulator has reversed its decision to exclude pregnant and breastfeeding women from the Sisonke Covid-19 vaccine study, clearing the way for them to be included when the national inoculation drive starts in May.

The Sisonke study aims to vaccinate 500,000 healthcare workers with Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) vaccine.

It resumed on Wednesday two weeks after it was ordered by the SA Health Products Regulatory Authority (Sahpra) that it be put on hold pending a probe into reports of rare blood clots among vaccine recipients in the US.
