Man Issuing Fake Covid-19 Vaccination Cards To Travellers Arrested In Abuja

Kogi State, in North-Central Nigeria has been left out as the Federal Government on Thursday said 35 states and the Federal Capital Territory {FCT} have been supplied with the Oxford/AztraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

The Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency {NPHCDA}, Dr Faisal Shuaib, disclosed this while addressing members of the National Economic Council during a virtual meeting.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, in a statement said the NPHCDA gave the update while briefing a virtual meeting of NEC presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, quoting Shuaibu as saying that Kogi has not received the vaccine due to the issue of cold-chain store and the disposition of the state government.

“Kogi State is yet to receive due to the non-repair of its Cold-Chain Store coupled with the state’s concerns around the contradictory information about the vaccines.

“The vaccination application has been launched in most states’ Treatment Centres even against distractions and criticism of the FG’s efforts to ensure availability of vaccines in the nation.
