Africa CDC Says Countries Without New Variant Should Use AstraZeneca Vaccine

The Africa CDC today urged African countries outside South Africa to proceed with the rollout of the Oxford- AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. 

 The African Union’s disease control body gave the advice on Thursday. 

 Director John Nkengasong said countries that have not reported the circulation of the 501Y.V2 coronavirus variant first identified in South Africa, are free to use the vaccine.
