COVID-19 vaccines administered in Nigeria
In an earlier report by Legit.ng, the federal government debunked claims that the government of the United Kingdom does not recognise various COVID-19 vaccines used in Nigeria.
The executive director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), Faisal Shuaib, said contrary to this claim, the UK government recognises all vaccines administered in Nigeria.
The NPHCDA boss said the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, also known as COVISHIELD that is used in Nigeria was approved by the UK regulatory body (MHRA), other stringent regulatory authorities and the World Health Organisation.
He further assured Nigerians that all the vaccines used in Nigeria are donations from the UK Government, the Canadian Government and the United States through the COVAX facility.
