COVID-19: Katsina, Nasarawa, Ogun, three others get N300m vaccine fund

The Nigeria Solidarity Support Fund (NSSF) has donated N300 million as part of its strategic support to the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) in the COVID-19 vaccination programme in Nigeria.

This, according to the fund, is to boost equity and access to COVID-19 vaccination among vulnerable Nigerians in Adamawa, Edo, Imo, Katsina, Nasarawa, and Ogun states.

The donation is expected to support the COVID-19 advocacy campaign in the six states across the six geo-political zones in Nigeria.

With a roll out target of 60 vaccines a day per team from October 1, NSSF noted that one million vaccinations would be achieved by December 31.

Speaking on the partnership in a statement, the NSSF Chairman, Babatunde Folawiyo, explained that the collaboration between the NPHCDA and NSSF would promote adequate education and awareness about the benefits of getting vaccinated.

Executive Director of NPHCDA, Dr Faisal Shuaib, said the partnership would ensure an increase in vaccine uptake in Nigeria.
