Nigeria May Get COVID-19 Vaccines In 10 Days – Health Minister Reveals

Dr Osagie Ehanire, Minister of Health, has said in Lagos on Saturday that Nigeria might get COVID-19 vaccines in the next 10 days, The PUNCH reports.

“We are told that by the end of this month, which is about 10 days from now, we shall get the vaccines.

“We do not produce the vaccines. They are manufactured abroad in about four or five countries,” he told newsmen at the end of an inspection tour of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba.

Ehanire explained that the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Russia and China that had succeeded in producing the vaccines have now giving licences to other countries to reproduce them.

“South Africa has a licence to make the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, while Russia only recently gave India the licence to produce AstraZeneca,’’ the minister said.

He said countries that produced the vaccines had serious challenges with COVID-19 and decided to attend to their needs first, a situation that the WHO described as vaccine nationalism.

Ehanire noted that while the whole world suffered the pangs of COVID-19 about 75 per cent of vaccines already produced were being used in 10 countries.

The minister stressed that Nigeria had put all facilities in place to receive the vaccines.

Welcoming the minister earlier, LUTH’s Chief Medical Director, Prof Chris Bode, asked the minister for assistance in the recruitment of 350 nurses, 50 consultants and 150 medical officers.

Bode said that the hospital also needed an Oxygen plant and increased funding to build a four-storey isolation centre, run the hospital effectively and pay huge monthly electricity bills.
