South Africa says term sheet signed for 9 mln J&J vaccine doses

- South Africa's health ministry said on Friday that the government had signed off on a term sheet for 9 million doses of Johnson & Johnson's JNJ.N COVID-19 vaccine at $10 a dose.

The ministry said in a presentation in parliament that one of the conditions for the J&J vaccine was the establishment of a no-fault compensation system for adverse events.

It added that Moderna MRNA.O had offered the country 200,000 doses of its COVID-19 vaccine priced at $30-$42 a dose in the second quarter, with more doses available in the third quarter.
