Just after a few months that the Oxford-Astrzeneca got approved as a world vaccine against the deadly Corona virus; NAFDAC’s finally gives it approval to the use of the vaccine.
Mojisola Adeyeye who is the Director-General of the agency, made an announcement during a virtual meeting on Friday in Abuja, explaining that the vaccine is for emergency use.
Nigeria had earlier in march received 3.9 million doses of the Astranezeneca jabs and highlighted the vaccination exercise during an event organized that was organized by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) in Abuja.
“I think that is about the best news we’ve heard since,” said medical doctor, Ngong Cyprian, the first person to take the vaccine in Nigeria. “I only wished my dad had had this vaccine, maybe months ago or so. We lost him but we thank God, and the fight is still on and we will win.”
Since the campaign for the vaccine began, over 600, 000 persons have taken the jabs, which have since then brought about the lower recording of infection cases.
