Will You Get the Covid-19 Vaccine When it Gets to Nigeria?

The government has appealed to Nigerians not to be hesitant to take the vaccine against the novel coronavirus when it gets to Nigeria. The country expects to receive its first batch of Covid-19 vaccines by the end of January 2021. Despite these efforts, health experts and bodies have said that it is "almost impossible" for Nigeria to start a vaccine campaign in January. As of January 18. 2021, the country recorded 112, 004 cases and 1,449 deaths. The government warned that a significant increase in Covid-19 infections appears imminent due to continued violation of safety protocols during the Christmas period.
