President Muhammadu Buhari was on Saturday afternoon, given his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The second dose is coming exactly twelve after the first dose was administered in March, as the rule stipulates.
The President took the vaccine on live television as he did before in order to boost public confidence in the authenticity of the drug.
After being vaccinated by the Chief Personal Physician to the President, Dr. Suhayb Rafindadi Sanusi, he was issued the vaccinated card by the Executive Director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Faisal Shuaib.
The President addressed newsmen thereafter, noting that Nigeria is not doing as bad as India and the United States in dealing with the pandemic. Although the President didn’t add that the two countries he mentioned have significantly higher population than Nigeria.
Nigeria plans to vaccinate about 80 million people before 2021 is over with the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines the country purchased in March.
