Nigeria To Receive 10 Million Vaccine Doses In March, Says Ehanire by TheStakeHolder(m): 3:17pm On Jan 15
Nigeria will receive 10 million
doses of coronavirus vaccine in
March , Health Minister Osagie
Ehanire said in a statement late
Thursday .

The vaccines add to 100, 000
expected doses of Pfizer vaccine ,
he said .

The statement did not specify
which type of vaccine would be
used for the 10 million doses.
It was also unclear whether the
batch would be financed by the
African Union or as part of
COVAX , which links the World
Health Organization with
private partners to work for
pooled procurement and
equitable distribution .

The most populous nation in
Africa , with around 200 million
people , Nigeria has officially
reported some 104, 000 Covid - 19
cases , of which 1 , 382 have been
fatal .

But these figures are believed to
fall short of the real toll , since
the number of tests in low .

Cases have risen sharply since
the end of November, notably in
the economic capital Lagos , a
city of about 20 million people .
The death rate has also
increased .

A variant strain of coronavirus
has been discovered in recent
months but it remains unclear
whether it is more contagious or
deadly.

The authorities recently
announced that they hope to
vaccinate 40 percent of the
population in the year 2021 .

But the challenges of
transporting and storing
vaccines for many millions of
people are enormous in a
country where adequate
hospital facilities are lacking.
