Which vaccine will 12-17 year olds receive?

Those between the ages of 12-17 will receive two dose of the Pfizer vaccine at this time.
The South African Health Products Authority (SAHPRA) has not registered J&J or approved its use in persons under the age of 18 and therefore only the Pfizer vaccine will be given to those under 18 years.
