China Donates 300,000 CoronaVac Doses to South African Army

China offered the South African National Defence Force 300,000 doses of the CoronaVac vaccine, which only has conditional approval from the nation’s health regulator.

The shots have yet to be delivered because the donation is still subject to certain unspecified protocols, Department of Health spokesman Foster Mohale said by phone on Tuesday. The donation was earlier reported by news website Daily Maverick.
