With this making the news, the 947 Breakfast Club asked Joburgers if they would take the vaccine or not?

No. I've read a lot of things about vaccines and they usually take years/decades and this seems a little soon.

Frankie, 947 Breakfast Club

I'll take the vaccine but only if it's free. This is a global pandemic, so if everyone has to pay for the vaccine, what about those people who can't afford to pay for it?

Quintin, 947 Breakfast Club caller

I'm not taking the vaccine.
