Nigeria may take delivery of its first batch of COVID-19 Vaccines between now and next week Monday.
This is according to the Executive Director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib.
Shuaib who spoke at a press conference, however, failed to give specific details on the arrival of the vaccines.
“The information we have is that we are likely to get the vaccines within one week. What that means is that we may get them between now and next Monday.
“But we will not give specific day of arrival until we get such information from the manufacturers,” Shuaib said.
The Chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha, cautioned Nigerians against patronising black market out of desperation to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
“We therefore plead for patience and vigilance. We also plead with Nigerians not to procure uncertified vaccines from the black market,” he said.
