Buhari, Osinbajo to receive COVID-19 vaccines this Saturday

President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, will on Saturday receive shots of AstraZeneca/Oxford COVID-19 vaccines.

This was confirmed by Dr Faisal Shuaib, the Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, at a State House briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

According to Shuaib, the exercise will boost the confidence of Nigerians to receive the about four million doses of the vaccine, which was shipped into the country this week.

Shuaib said, “The next step in the vaccination programme given that we’ve now received the vaccines is a launch that will be taking place at the National Hospital tomorrow (Friday). The time scheduled for that launch is 10am. The launch will be conducted by the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, (Boss Mustapha).

“The plan is to vaccinate the frontline health workers that work in the treatment centre of the National Hospital, those will be the first people just like we’ve communicated that frontline health workers will be the first people to take the vaccines.

“After that, the plan is to vaccinate Mr President, Mr Vice President and strategic leaders on Saturday. Again, we are hopeful that when Nigerians see leaders like Mr President and Mr Vice President take the vaccines; it will increase their confidence around the safety of the vaccines.

“As you are well aware that even before the vaccines arrived Nigeria, there is a lot of hesitancy. It is a global phenomenon. Vaccine hesitancy is similar no matter where you are, you have to provide the right information and to those people who have questions, we cannot dismiss their cynicism.

“It is our responsibility as public health workers not to only offer the vaccines but do the extra work in terms of providing the resources that are needed and to convince people that these vaccines are safe.”

The NPHCDA boss also enjoined Nigerians who wish to receive the vaccines to register on the website of the agency.
