Executive Director, National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, says the distribution of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines to the states started on Monday and its delivery would be completed on Tuesday.
He stated this in Abuja at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
“The delivery of the vaccines to the states is predicated on satisfactorily meeting the conditions to keep them safe and potent.
“We’re designating vaccine accountability officers in the states and local government areas to closely monitor the management and utilization of the vaccines.
“These VAOs will also ensure retrieval of vaccine vials for proper disposal,” Shuaib said.
