Vaccine delays won't happen says Aspen

Aspen Pharmacare Holdings said it would take two weeks to replace South African Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccines that need to be discarded as a result of contamination at a U.S. plant — but the national rollout target could still be met.

Africa’s biggest drugmaker has a deal to package and fill J&J vials at a factory in the coastal town of Gqeberha, until recently known as Port Elizabeth.

A batch of about 2 million doses there has been suspended for weeks while the U.S. Food & Drug Administration reviewed whether they are fit for use, and it’s now clear they will need to be thrown out.

gqwhere?
Yeah no I doubt it's until recently known as P.E.
I'm quite convinced it's currently, very well known as P.E.
What is it not very well known for is the gq thing. But ey :) I'm not the journalist.
