I had the J&J in April / May and want to get a booster shot , wonder when this will be allowed?

Probably next year if you're not HCW or affiliated. I don't even know if they'll succeed with HCW boosting even this year.

Boosters will probably be scheduled according to age for lay folks.

I wonder why the drop
I suspect it's due to the 3rd wave subsiding. The sense of urgency is gone. We'll see if it picks up when the 4th wave starts. If not, it means that the majority that actually wanted the vaccine has now gotten it. Which also means we'll never reach our targets...

Too many people that don't want to get vaxxed. There are some problems with lack of weekend sites and distances, but I think that the biggest factor is people simply not wanting vaccines.

156 258 new vaccinations were reported yesterday. The 7 day average declined to 107 175, just over quarter of the 400 000 we should be doing at this stage.

IMHO it's time to set a hard deadline for free vaccines. 1 Jan 2022 for your first shot, 1 Apr 2022 for your 2nd shot.

If you haven't gotten it by then, sorry for you. You can now go and pay for it yourself. That might shake some people out of their slumber.

Total partially vaccinated and fully vaccinated numbers to date?

I read18 million people have received a jab, but I'm guessing a good portion of that is first jab only( i.e only 1 Pfizer shot)

Googling "south africa vaccination statistics" gives
View attachment 1162368
Thanks, a mere 16% ... better than nothing, but by the time (if ever) a substantial fraction of our population is fully vaccinated no doubt there will be need for new vaccination(s) due to variants and/or booster shots ( within next 6 months).

A possible never ending catch up game...
