Boss Mustapha, chairman of the presidential task force (PTF) and secretary to the government of the federation, says Nigeria will receive four million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday.
This was disclosed in a message on Saturday night.
Bashir Ahmad, media aide to President Muhamadu Buhari, confirmed the development in a post on his Twitter handle, adding that the shipment expected will contain doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
“Barring any change in the delivery plan, Nigeria is expected to receive four million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines on Tuesday, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, SGF Boss Mustapha, disclosed that tonight,” he wrote.
Nigeria’s vaccine delivery is expected through the COVAX facility, which is co-led by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI).

The vaccine delivery comes one year after the country recorded its index case of the coronavirus.
The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) is expected to organise the distribution of the vaccine doses, in collaboration with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
Meanwhile, as of February 27, 2021, the country has confirmed over 150,000 coronavirus infections, but more than 130,000 patients have recovered.
