Dr. Justin Manasa Confirms Safety Of Sinopharm Vaccine
Amidst growing concern over the safety of the administering of the Sinopharm vaccine, in a recent press conference – Dr. Justin Manasa has confirmed its safety by stating that the vaccine ‘stimulates different aspects of the immune response targeting different proteins on the virus which makes it deviate from other vaccines’.
Dr. Justin Manasa who is CO-CHAIRPERSON of Virological Monitoring had the following to say,
“As we are monitoring the pandemic, we need to make sure that we do genomic surveillance which looks at the virus changes over time, to see how much it is changing and that will also guide us on the vaccines that we are using.
In terms of the monitoring programs that we are embarking on, we are monitoring the virus as we are implementing the vaccine in our population and trying to identify if there are any changes that enable the virus to infect people despite them being vaccinated.
So we then discuss on that information with people who are developing vaccines so that they can adapt the vaccines to the circulating strains in our population.”
The take-up of the primary bunch of the immunization is by all accounts extremely low as a result of conspiracies that have been inundated on various online media platforms, notwithstanding the Government’s efforts in ensuring the safety of the vaccine.
