2.3m Persons Registered For COVID-19 Vaccination In Less Than 24 Hours – NPHCDA

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) on Wednesday revealed that up to 2.3m Nigerians have indicated an interest in taking the Covid-19 vaccines. THis laid to rest fears that people may not want to be vaccinated against the virus

Despite fears over the safety of the vaccines, the Executive Director of NPHCDA, Faisal Shuaib, says he enthusiastic that many people in Nigeria really want to take the vaccines.

“I can tell you that there is a lot of excitement [about the vaccine arrival]. I know some people have their concerns and we are trying but I want to give you an example of the enthusiasm that Nigerians are showing around wanting to take these vaccines,” the medical practitioner said in an interview with Channels TV

“Around midday on Monday when we launched the e-registration platform, in less than 24 hours, we already had up to 2.3m Nigerians who had registered. And that number continues to increase,” he added.

Recall that on Tuesday, Nigeria this week received about 4m doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 jabs.
