Federal Government receives 2 million doses of Covid-19 Vaccines from the European Union.

The Federal Government is set to receive two million doses of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 Vaccine donated by the European Union.

The vaccines will be handed over formally to Nigeria at the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, NPHCDA, National Strategic Cold Store, and Abuja.

The donation is coming at the time government has begun another phase of mass vaccination in its determination to control covid-19 pandemic.

Report shows that over 14,093,873 eligible persons have so far received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine in Nigeria while 5,252,406 eligible Nigerians have been fully vaccinated.

Although there have been challenges of undue vaccine hesitancy in the country, the NPHCDA, through its Executive Director, Dr Faisal Shuaib, had recently expressed optimism that there would be improvement.
