Faisal Shuaib, The Executive Director of National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) has announce all the state that have received the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine which arrive the country weeks ago except Kogi State who is yet to receive theirs.

Shuaib who disclosed this on Thursday, March 18 2021 said Kogi State is yet to receive the Vaccine due to the non-repair of their cold chain store coupled with the state concern around the contradictory information about the Vaccine.

On the National Roll out of the Vaccine, the NPHCDA Director said;

The vaccination application has been launched in most states’ treatment centres even against distractions and criticism of the FG’s efforts to ensure availability of vaccines in the nation.

“The roll-out of the vaccines across healthcare front-line workers and other health support staff was scheduled to commence by March 15, 2021, in some States, with the intention of wider coverage after the training of the states’ health workers across board.”

Shuaib who revealed that the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) had been co-opted to support the PTF on Vaccine Accountability to ensure the safekeeping of the vaccines, made calls for tight security around the vaccines in the states to avoid it being vandalised by hoodlums.
