COVID-19 Vaccine: Nigeria To Begin Administering Second Batch On Aug 10 by Liposure: 8:14am On Aug 08
The Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 (PSC), says the country will start administering the second batch of COVID-19 vaccines from Aug. 10.

The vaccines were donated by the United State of America.

The committee’s Director of Publicity, Mr Willie Bassey, made this known in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

According to Bassey, this is to step up efforts to battle the third wave of infections.

“The PSC has received over four million doses of Moderna vaccine donated by the U.S. Government to Nigeria.

“In view of the above, the inoculation is scheduled from Tuesday, Aug. 10, at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, off Airport road, Abuja,” he said.

NAN recalls that the donation was part of President Joe Biden’s promise to give 500 million vaccines to the world by the end of 2022.

The delivery was the second batch of vaccines to arrive in Nigeria after four million doses were delivered in March under the COVAX vaccine sharing facility.

COVAX was set up to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines, particularly to low-income countries, and had already delivered more than 80 million doses to 129 territories.

Nigeria had since exhausted the four million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The Moderna vaccine received on Aug. 1, is mRNA type of vaccine, manufactured and developed by Moderna, NIAID. Two shots of the vaccine are to be administered through intramuscular injection, 28 days apart.

The Moderna vaccine had been listed for emergency use by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and approved by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), as safe and effective, based on data from large-scale clinical trials.

NAN recalls that the Federal Government announced its plan to vaccinate 109 million people against the COVID-19 virus, over a period of two years.

It said that only eligible population from 18 years and above would be vaccinated.

To achieve this, “the vaccine roll-out will be in four phases, starting with health workers, frontline workers, COVID-19 rapid response team, laboratory network, policemen, petrol station workers and strategic leaders.

“Phase 2 will cover older adults aged 50 years and above and those with co-morbidities aged 18-49.

“Phase 3 will cover those in states/local governments with high disease burden and those who missed phases 1 and 2 while phase 4 will cover other eligible population as vaccines become available,” it stated.

Growing up, I was made to believe that the Muslim North of Nigeria was so backward that they reject polio vaccine due to illiteracy and ethno-religious distrust that the Western powers in collusion with the Christian South of Nigeria was intent on reducing their population.

Now we see Southerners, Christians, and educated Nigerians exhibit the same misguided fear and "illiteracy".

Every human is susceptible to the same mental conditioning. Every society no matter its claims to sophistication or civility, can be reduced to its basic human instinct of fear and distrust.

Fake. I have taken dose one. Will take dose 2 this week.not magnetic to anything

Plus the needle for injecting microchips are larger than vaccine needle

Plus microchips get spoilt if put in liquid for long time

Also we don't have the technology to chip every one or to follow everyone. Sweden has some people chipped. They can use the technology within a very limited area. Once outside the area nothing.

Chipping may become common maybe at the end of this century or the beginning of next when the tech and durability improves .Especially as we don't know what would happen if such things were.kept in the body long term.

People can be so gullible.

Apart from the vaccine (which I don't care if it causes magnetism or not), of course humans can be magnetic based on bodily exposure to certain substances.

You are the gullible one actually.

Educate yourself online.

They need to vaccinate people who wish to take the first dose first before starting the second dose. The rate of vaccination is still too low.

Didn't even take the first dose

I registered for over 15 people, non of them got it, I repeat not even one of them got it.

But get this, the vaccine was taken to A lists agencies where the elites, politicians and their wards are working & given to them freely...They not need to apply online or pay money for the vaccine.

Humans do produce a magnetic field but it is not as strong as to attract metals

Also add that Vaccination does not stop one from contracting COVID. I did 2 complete jabs. I contracted the Virus. No complications. Just small cough. I am still at the Isolation center. I am fine now. Guys, please vaccinate.

A vaccinated person is more likely to get a less severe form of covid than a vaccinated person
