Nigeria begins vaccination against Covid-19



Nigeria has joined the league of countries to vaccinate their citizens against coronavirus (COVID-19) as four health workers were the first to take the jabs.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), who is also the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Mr Boss Mustapha, launched the exercise on behalf of the President in Abuja.

He noted that it was another great milestone in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria, saying the people have every cause to be hopeful and more determined to win the fight against the disease.

According to Mustapha, the activities that culminated in the arrival, authorisation, and distribution of vaccines have shown that humanity, when working for a common goal and unity of purpose, possesses the capacity to achieve a lot.
