Nigeria to get new COVID-19 doses – NPHCD

The executive director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), Dr Faisal Shuaib, has said Nigeria will soon receive the next batch of COVID-19 vaccines.

During a presentation of a new campaign message to counter COVID-19 vaccine disinformation by the Nigerian Interfaith Action Association (NIFAA) in Abuja, Dr Shuaib said the country was on course to achieve the two million milestone of those who got the first jab. On the new campaign method sponsored by Caritas Nigeria, he said the message focused on seven key messages to convey information around COVID-19.

Earlier, the executive director, NIFAA, Bishop Sunday N. Onuoha, said the campaign devised messages in local parlance to inform people of the effects of COVID-19 and why the vaccine is important.
