Why Every Nigerian Should Take COVID-19 Vaccine - FG

The Federal Government yesterday said every Nigerian was at great risk of contracting the COVID-19, declaring that everybody has to be vaccinated in order to defeat the pandemic.

The Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce PTF on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha, reviewed this in Abuja during a sensitization meeting on COVID-19 vaccine introduction with the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and other Christian scholars.

The PTF Chairman, hinted on the need to adhere to COVID-19 protocols while stressing that the discovery of vaccines to the virus has not relegated the former to the background. Stating that the meeeting was organised to enable each and everyone to brainstorm on the possible ways in which the vaccination process can be carried out.

Mustapha said: “The arrival of vaccines has given hope to humanity that a solution has been found. This does not, however, mean that the Non-pharmaceutical interventions NPIs (COVID-19 protocols) would be discarded. Going forward, it shall be NPIs + vaccines for every one to completely get over the pandemic.
