“We do not produce the vaccines. They are manufactured abroad in about four or five countries.

“The US, UK, Russia and China that have succeeded in producing COVID-19 vaccines have started issuing licences to other countries to reproduce them.

“South Africa has a licence to make the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, while Russia only recently gave India the licence to produce AstraZeneca.”

Ehanire further said that some of the vaccine-producing countries decided to attend to their needs first because they had serious challenges with COVID-19.

He noted that while the whole world suffered the ache of the pandemic, about 75 percent of vaccines already produced were being used in 10 countries.
