The Federal Government has advised Nigerians to disregard all the negative and untrue things that people say about the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said this while speaking on a radio programme on Sunday, February 21, in Lagos. According to the Minister, the government is doing its best to ensure that vaccines are readily available at the end of the month.
He said, “Yes, we are doing our best. By the end of the month, we are expecting 16 million AstraZeneca vaccines, out of the 41 million doses promised by WHO under the CAVAX arrangement. On our own, we have paid for 43 million vaccine doses including AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson. So that will arrive later. So, we are doing our best. I want to urge Nigerians to avail themselves of the vaccines when they arrive. All the negative and untrue things that people say about the vaccines will not help.”
