The minister of health, Osagie Ehanire, on Thursday, January 28, revealed Nigeria has secured an additional 41 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Nigeria had earlier secured 100,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine through the COVAX facility, which is co-led by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and GAVI Alliance.

Speaking with Channel Television, Ehanire said the additional 41 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines is through the African Vaccine Acquisition Task Team (AVATT), a vaccine strategy organised by the African Union, which is chaired by Cyril Ramaphosa, president of South Africa.

According to him, “At the meeting we had on the 6th of January, it was announced that they had a mix of 270 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines going to be ready, because they are on order.

Now, we immediately applied for 10 million doses, but at the meeting we had two days ago, the AVATT team announced that they actually had now done allocation according to population. Nigeria is allocated 41 million doses of vaccines of three types.”
