Why COVID-19 Vaccine Will Be Administered Without Clinical Trial – NAFDAC by NwaNimo1(m): 5:43pm On Jan 03
The National Agency for food and drug administration, NAFDAC, has said the planned roll-out of coronavirus vaccines in Nigeria, expected to begin in January will not be subjected to fresh clinical trials before they are administered to citizens. shocked

The spokesman of the agency, Sayo Akintola, who made this known during an interview with newsmen said local trials for the vaccine were unnecessary since the vaccine was already certified by the World Health Organisation.

“The truth is that once a vaccine is approved by the WHO, it is assumed that it has passed through some preliminary stages of the trial.

“It is a known fact that for the WHO to sanction a vaccine, it must have gone through a series of trials here and there,” he said.

He, however, explained that a sample of the vaccine will be taken to the lab for its “safety and efficacy” to be ascertained before inoculation.

Recall that the Nigeria Medical Association had asked the federal government to do its evaluation of the COVID-19 vaccine before administering it on Nigerians.

But with NAFDAC’s position, Nigeria’s health authorities may very well proceed with vaccinations, trusting WHO’s expertise.

If the vaccine eventually arrives in the country, about 40 million Nigerians may receive it for free.

This is as earlier disclosed by the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, following President Buhari’s directive to proceed with procurement arrangements.

And Pharma companies are protected by 'indemnity clauses' which ensures their freedom/aversion from any complications of potential side effects.

..yet we are "conspiracy theorists", "religious fanatics" and "anti-vaxxers" for suspecting any foul play.

Interesting grin

That it is certified by the WHO is not enough for them not to be sure it is compatible with us. If they plan to go this route, they should start with those in the government.

It will be tested on poor people that is what they meant.

ENJOY YOUR VACCINATIONS

The government should pay 5000 naira to Nigerians before they take it, the vaccination line will be filled up even some will take it 2 times.

Many Nigerians are sceptical about the vaccine. I have heard quite a number of people say they will never take the jab, after all corona isn't killing people here in numbers, according to them, so why the vaccination?
