The federal government has received 1,936,050 doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine from the European Union.

The doses were handed over to officials of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) yesterday at the national strategic cold store in Abuja.

Speaking while receiving the vaccine, Faisal Shuaib, NPHCDA executive director, said Nigeria “currently has in country 12,916,450 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine”.

“On behalf of the federal government of Nigeria, I want to sincerely appreciate the European Union for your continued partnership in development. We have no doubt about the commitment of the European Union to the eradication of COVID-19 from Nigeria and the rest of the world. The onus is upon us to make rational and effective use of the vaccines,” he added.
