COVID-19: 3.5 million Nigerians fully vaccinated - NPHCDA
The National Primary Healthcare Development Agency on Wednesday said 3.5 million eligible Nigerians have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The Executive Director, NPHCDA, Dr Faisal Shuaib, represented by the Director (Disease Control and Immunisation), Bassey Okposen, stated during an awareness programme for students on COVID-19 vaccine organised by the National Association of Nigerian Students, which was held at the University of Abuja.
During the event, the President of NANS, Sunday Asefon, urged all students that were yet to be vaccinated to take advantage of the mass vaccination to receive their jab in order to protect themselves and their campuses.Shuaib said the Federal Government had adequate doses of vaccines in-store to cover a large percentage of the population, adding that the country was awaiting about 57 million doses of the vaccine.
According to him, the country needed to vaccinate about 70 per cent of the overall population to reach herd immunity against the virus.He said, “6.6 million Nigerians have taken the first dose. Another 3.5 million of the figure have taken the second dose. We are targeting 70 per cent because the current number is low. headtopics.com
“The risk this poses to the nation is that it would give a chance for mutation of the virus. The virus mutates in an environment where herd immunity is low. And for us as a nation, we have only achieved 3.5 million for the second dose which is very low. This is why mutation can happen so fast.
“The United Kingdom and few other governments have banned Nigeria. Though not that we cannot travel but when we get there, we have to quarantine for 10 days. The simple reason is that in some of the cases of Omicron in the UK, the travellers are from Nigeria. That is why they are taking safety precautions. It is not because of the vaccines we are using but because the cases they have for now are from Nigeria.
“We have more than enough vaccine in Nigeria for now. We also have a pool of vaccines almost 57 million that are awaiting shipment. There is about 40 million already in the country and we have secured about 90 million doses.Read more: The Punch Newspapers »
