Nigeria expecting 129 million COVID-19 vaccines — PTF

About 129 million doses of free COVID-19 vaccines are expected from two different sources, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 pandemic has said.

The Chairman of the PTF and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha, who made the disclosure at the weekend, said the vaccines are coming from COVID-19 Vaccines Global Assess Facility (COVAX) and the African Vaccine Acquisition Task Team (AVATT).

According to him, the first batch of the deliveries, which is four million doses, will arrive on Tuesday, March 2. Adding that the vaccine allocation being expected is at no financial cost to Nigeria. Nigeria expects to receive a total of about 84 million doses from the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Assess Facility (COVAX).

“Well, I can assure you that the vaccines are coming, and they are coming very quickly, barring any change in the delivery plan that has been released to us by UNICEF, like I said, barring any change, because the logistical arrangements and other things are in the hands of the UNICEF, we believe that the vaccines should depart India tonight, March 1, and arrive Abuja tomorrow morning. So we are making preparation for that,” he said.
