In Dr. Osagie Ehanire’s words “So I urge all citizens to drop their hesitancy and take the vaccines. It is commonplace in many foreign countries now that proof of Covid-19 vaccination is needed, in order to be admitted to restaurants, cinemas, nightclubs, even to board aircraft on international flights.

“This trend is intensifying around the world and will, no doubt, begin to take root in Nigeria in due course. I will not be surprised if domestic Nigerian Airlines start to demand vaccination cards, before boarding. I advise that, nobody should be left behind in vaccination, lest they face an embarrassing situation”.

Also speaking at the media briefing of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 yesterday, the Executive Director of National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), Dr. Faisal Shuaib said that: “As of this morning, Monday, November 15th, 2021, a total of 5,891,305 eligible persons have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.”

“We hope to vaccinate at least 50 percent of our population by the end of January 2022. We will be conducting the National flag off of this mass vaccination campaign this Friday, November 19th, 2021 by 10am.

Speaking about Fraudulent cases involving illegal procurement of vaccination cards, Shuaib said; “it was found that the reason for the non-validation was that the expiry date of the 1st and 2nd dose was altered, and there was inconsistencies with the vaccine expiration dates and batch number and the QR code scanned belonged to another person.

“ This clearly showed that Mr Amako illegally obtained the vaccination card without getting vaccinated. Once we conclude the investigation, we will reveal his full names to the public.”
