NCDC Embark On Damage Control, Allays Fears Over Oxford/AstraZeneca Vaccine

The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu on Tuesday, allayed fears overN the safety of the Oxford/AztraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, in a renewed effort at assuring Nigerians that it is safe and effective.

Ihekweazu, who gave the assurance in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, while handing over the newly constructed molecular laboratory to the management of the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, said despite reports of some European countries discontinuing the vaccine’s application, Nigerians should believe in its safety and efficacy.

“We are very confident of the vaccine we introduced in the country and that it would become a game-changer in the fight against COVID 19.

“I and other front line staff have been vaccinated and I am still standing,” he said.
