Dr Ejike Oji, Chairman Technical Management Committee, Association for the Advancement of Family Planning (AAFP), on Friday said that about two million Nigerians have signified interest for COVID-19 vaccines.

Oji disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Abuja.

He also assured that the arrival of almost four million doses of COVID-19 vaccines in Nigeria will guarantee national immunity.

“According to the National Primary Health Care Agency (NPHCA), over two million persons have registered for the vaccines; therefore, people are willing to get immunity against the virus.

“If the health workers who are the frontliners in the fight against COVID-19 get immunised, certainly, infections and deaths will reduce,” he said.

The medical practitioner expressed hope that the spread of COVID-19 would reduce with the arrival of the vaccines.

Nigeria had on Monday received 3,924 doses of COVID-19 vaccines from the global COVAX initiative.

The COVAX programme shipped close to four million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccines manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, from Mumbai to Nigeria
