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.
