South Africa’s health regulator reported on Thursday a causal link between the death of an individual and Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) (JNJ.N) COVID-19 vaccine, the first time such a direct link has been made in the country.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is recommending Novavax’s COVID-19 vaccine carry a warning of the possibility of two types of heart inflammation, an added burden for a shot that has so far failed to win wide uptake.

Under the expanded deal, AstraZeneca’s will have access to Oxford Biomedica’s Oxbox manufacturing facility to produce its shot on an as-needed basis beyond 2022.
