COVID-19 Vaccine has become a major concern among the Nigerian state governors who are urging the federal government to commit to local production of COVID Vaccine rather than depending on foreign pharmaceutical firms.
They are not comfortable with the lack of clarity on the arrival of the vaccine in Nigeria and asked the presidency to accelerate the delivery.
This was admitted by the chairman of the Nigeria governor’s forum, Kayode Fayemi, who disclosed this on Friday after meeting with the presidency at the Presidential Villa.
100,000 COVID-19 Vaccine is expected in Nigeria from COVAXX, the global initiative by the world health organization aimed at ensuring rapid and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines for it’s 190 participating countries.
Other trending news about the COVID-19 Vaccine is the availability of the governor’s to be the first to publicly take the vaccine live on television, The real question remains; How authentic is this vaccine to our health?
It was disclosed some months back that an American citizen became critically ill after receiving shots of the vaccine and has not regained her health.
The governors are already afraid of the importation of the vaccines to the country, that is why they seek local production of the vaccines to verify the true nature of the vaccines.
Before the vaccine is distributed to Nigeria, it is important to know the content of the vaccines and make thorough research on how the vaccine works to prevent COVID.
There is the belief that this may be a ploy by some international extremists to destroy lives and so we must remain cautious at all times.
