The Federal Government has postponed the administration of the second phase of the coronavirus vaccine doses.
The Director of Press, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey, had announced on Saturday that the administration would commence on Tuesday.
However, in a notice on Sunday, Bassey said the exercise had been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.
The notice titled, ‘Postponement of phase II of national vacation programme,’ reads, “This is to announce the postponement of the national flag-off exercise of phase II vaccination programme earlier scheduled for Tuesday this week due to unforeseen circumstances.
“A new date will be communicated, please.”
No fewer than 53 persons died from COVID-19 complications in Nigeria within two weeks.
Recall that Nigeria had last week taken delivery of over four million doses of Moderna vaccine while still awaiting doses of J and J vaccine which are due for delivery in August and September 2021.
