The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) on Wednesday dispelled fears that people may not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19, noting that up to 2.3m Nigerians have indicated an interest in taking the jabs.
Nigeria on Tuesday received 3.92million COVID-19 vaccine doses.
Only states that have ready facilities and prepared will be given vaccines, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 Management said yesterday.
The National Primary Health Care Development Agency has commenced online registration of Nigerians interested in taking COVID-19 vaccination ahead of the Tuesday arrival of the first batch of the nation’s vaccines.
Nigerian authorities say the expected COVID-19 vaccine would be administered in the order of priority, less than 24 hours to the arrival of the vaccine.
