Buhari, Osinbajo, SGF to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine on Live Broadcast

Faisal Shuaib, the Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari; Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; and other distinguished Nigerians will be among the first set of people to be given the COVID-19 vaccine on live television to help create awareness on the importance of the vaccine.

Shuaib said this on Thursday during the weekly press briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

He said, “On Tuesday, I mentioned that we will like to see a situation where Mr President, the Vice President, the SGF, critical leaders come and take the vaccine in full glare of the public to demonstrate that this vaccine is safe.

“So, we have to make provisions for those. But even in developed countries, what we have seen is that apart from the prioritisation of health workers, you have to also identify critical leaders that you don’t want them to be wiped off by the virus.”

According to Shuaib, experience had indicated that vaccines are always better than health immunity.

He went on to add that it would require approximately 10 years for individuals to develop health immunity against COVID-19 and several people would have lost their lives is health immunity is to be depended upon.
