South Africa's health minister said on Tuesday that a committee advising the government had grouped Covid-19 vaccines into three groups and those considered for "immediate use" were the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna shots.

In a second group where South Africa is interested but requires more technical information are Russia's Sputnik V vaccine and shots from China's Sinopharm and Sinovac, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize said.

A third group where vaccines "may not be suitable for immediate use in South Africa" includes the AstraZeneca and Novavax vaccines, Mkhize added.
