2.3m Persons Registered For COVID-19 Vaccines In Less Than 24hours- NPHCDA

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) said 2.3m Nigerians have registered for COVID-19 vaccination in less than 24hours after it announced the launch of a portal for registration for the vaccination.

The Executive Director of NPHCDA, Faisal Shuaib said there is enthusiasm in Nigeria over Monday’s arrival of about 4m doses of AstraZeneca vaccines on Wednesday in an interview on Channels TV.

“I can tell you that there is a lot of excitement [about the vaccine arrival]. I know some people have their concerns and we are trying but I want to give you an example of the enthusiasm that Nigerians are showing around wanting to take these vaccines,” the medical practitioner said during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

“Around midday on Monday when we launched the e-registration platform, in less than 24 hours, we already had up to 2.3m Nigerians who had registered. And that number continues to increase.”
