Right after President Muhammadu Buhari received his booster shot in Abuja yesterday; Dr Faisal Shuaib, explained that vaccines have the ability to protect those vaccinated from “severe” forms of COVID-19.

According to Dr. Faisal Shuaib, “The evidence is there. Over 8 million Nigerians have taken the vaccines safely. They are well; they are going about their normal businesses.  And what we’re seeing from the data is that COVID-19 is now mostly a disease of the unvaccinated. Out of every 10 people that have died, the data shows that eight of them are unvaccinated.

“So, there’s a greater likelihood of dying from COVID-19 if you’re unvaccinated. What Mr. President has done today is again to indicate to all Nigerians that federal government does everything to make sure that only safe and efficacious vaccines are brought into Nigeria and when they are brought into Nigeria.”

He further stressed that the country has enough COVID-19 vaccines to get all citizens vaccinated. He insisted that, “Now we have vaccines. A few months ago, we had a challenge of no vaccines because of the global supply shortage. Now we have more than enough vaccines to get all Nigerians vaccinated,” he added.

“So, I urge all Nigerians to seize the opportunity and get vaccinated just like Mr. President has shown leadership.”

Going further, Dr. Faisal Shuaib, advised individuals to get the vaccines at the nearest health facility or any vaccination center. According to him, whoever requires the jab should go along with their vaccination card and they will be given the booster shots at no cost.

He concluded by saying, “We’re making the vaccines available all across the country. So, you don’t have to go too far from where you live or from where you work to get the booster doses.”
