COVID-19 Variant: Okowa urges Nigerians to embrace vaccination

Delta Governor, Sen. (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, has called on Nigerians to take the COVID-19 vaccines, saying that vaccination was safe and that no death had been recorded as a result of administration of the vaccine in the country.

Okowa made the call at his quarterly interaction with journalists on Tuesday in Asaba.

He said that it had become very imperative for Nigerians to embrace vaccines, especially with the Omicron and Delta variants currently ravaging the world.

He stated that there was no shortage of vaccines in the state and the country and urged the people to take the vaccines as they were safe.

“Deltans and Nigerians are not accessing the vaccines enough; it is safe and many people are not taking advantage of the free vaccines.

“There has been no single case of death in Nigeria as a result of the vaccine,’’ the governor said

On the Omicron Variant of COVID-19, he advised Nigerians not to panic but to continue to observe necessary pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical prevention protocols.

On Contributory Health Insurance, the Governor said the Delta model was being adopted by other states, adding that over one million enrollees were currently engaged in the scheme.
