About 300,000 people in Nigeria have obtained their first doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19, according to the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).
The NPHCDA announced yesterday on its official Twitter account that the country’s vaccination rate was 9.5% as of March 26, 2021.
According to the study, over 374, 585 people have been immunised across 34 states and the Federal Capital Region.
According to data from the Nigeria Immunisation Agency, all states in the country have begun vaccination against the virus, with the exception of Kogi.
It claimed that Kogi State was not supplied with vaccines because their cold store was still being repaired after being vandalised during the EndSARS protest.
It reported that Lagos state, the epicentre of coronavirus in the country, had vaccinated nearly 92,000 people, the most in the region, followed by Ogun with 36,953, Bauchi-31,321, Kaduna-29,426, Jigawa-22,420, and Kwara-20,060.
The states with the fewest vaccinated population were Kebbi and Taraba, with one each, and Abia, with four.
The NPHCDA said Nigerians could register for their COVID-19 vaccination by visiting its website nphcda.gov.ng and clicking on COVID-19 Vaccination e-registration.
