State governors and their deputies are to take the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday (March 10).
Dr Kayode Fayemi, the Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) and Governor of Ekiti, disclosed this at a virtual news conference on Thursday.
Fayemi said that the vaccination was part of resolutions made by the governors during an emergency virtual meeting held on Thursday.
He said that the vaccination would be done publicly.
Fayemi said the governors would enlighten more Nigerians on the need to take the vaccine, which, he said, was safe.
He expressed the governors’ commitment to work with the Federal Government to ensure that the required cold chain would be set up for the vaccine.
The governor encouraged citizens to use the e-registeration portal on the National Primary Health Care Development Agency website – nphcsaict.com.ng/publicreg – to register for vaccination.
