JOHANNESBURG - Concerns have been raised of the possible under-reporting of side-effects to COVID-19 vaccines administered locally.
The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) says information about reactions to this jab but also other medicines are lowest in this country.
Fewer than a hundred cases of adverse reactions have been reported since May, and no deaths are linked to the COVID-19 vaccine.
SAHPRA is encouraging everyone to report any adverse reactions to the vaccine on established platforms to avoid panic and misinformation.
