As part of its plan to inoculate 40 percent of the population this year and another 30 percent next year, Nigeria expects to get its first batch of Covid-19 vaccines by the end of this month, the head of the country’s primary health agency, Faisal Shuaib, has said.

The first batch will include 100,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine acquired via the Covax global vaccine-sharing scheme.

Mr Shuaib said Nigeria must first inoculate frontline health staff, first responders, national leaders, coronavirus-prone individuals and the elderly.

Mr Shuaib added that the country aims to get 42 million vaccines to protect one-fifth of its population through the program.

In the midst of widespread fears that wealthy nations will snatch them up, the World Health Organization developed the Covax system to help poorer countries access Covid-19 vaccines.
