Nigeria expecting Covid-19 vaccine by January – Minister

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, on Wednesday said Nigeria should take delivery of Covid-19 vaccine by January 2021.

He said a committee set up for that purpose was already working with a view to deciding the kind of vaccine that would be suitable for Nigeria.

Ehanire disclosed this in an interview with State House correspondents after the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

He said Nigeria had signed up with the World Health Organisation and the GAVI Alliance for access to vaccines immediately they are available.
