Written by on December 22, 2020

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NEEDS ABOUT N400 BILLION TO VACCINATE 70 PERCENT OF NIGERIA’S 211 MILLION POPULATION AGAINST COVID-19; SO SAYS THE MINISTER OF HEALTH, DR. OSAGIE EHANIRE.

THE MINISTER OF HEALTH WHO REVEALED THIS ON MONDAY WHILE BRIEFING THE SENATE LEADERSHIP ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PLANS TO PROCURE COVID-19 VACCINES FOR CITIZENS SAID THAT THE SUM OF N156 BILLION WILL BE NEEDED IN 2021, N200 BILLION IN 2022.

ACCORDING TO EHANIRE, THE GOVERNMENT WAS SUBSTANTIALLY READY FOR A SUCCESSFUL COVID-19 VACCINATION TO SAVE THE LIVES OF THE CITIZENS ESPECIALLY WITH THE SECOND WAVE OF THE VIRUS SWEEPING ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

EHANIRE ALSO URGED THE SENATE TO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE PLAN FOR COVID-19 VACCINE CAMPAIGN NOTING THAT A COUNTRY WHICH HAD SUCCESSFULLY FOUGHT POLIO WOULD USE THE SAME STORAGE FACILITIES (COLD CHAINS) TO STORE THE COVID-19 VACCINES.
