The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, has disclosed that private importation of the COVID-19 vaccine has not been approved by the Federal government.

Enahire, who stated this during the Presidential Tasks Force (PTF) briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja, said: ”Private importation of COVID-19 vaccines has not been authorised due to reports of substandard falsified vaccines in circulation.

“The deployment of vaccines will be handled by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) or any of the agency’s accredited facilities for now.”

On the ongoing concerns about the AstraZeneca vaccines, the minister reassured that the vaccines were safe and no adverse effects had been recorded in the country.

“The president, vice president, other leaders and frontline health workers have taken the vaccines and are all doing well,” he said.
