Senator Mamora

 

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has said that Nigerians under the age of 18 years will not receive the COVID-19 vaccines in the country.

Minister of State for Health, Dr Olorunnimbe Mamora, said that the Federal Government planned to cover 70 percent of Nigerians within two years.

He warned that private organizations are not permitted to procure, distribute and administer the coronavirus vaccines.

“To ensure smooth management of the four million vaccines arriving on Tuesday, Mamora said the PTF had approved the TEACH strategy and the electronic management immunization system.

“He said that the strategy called the TEACH approach harnesses all the benefits of traditional, electronic, assisted and concomitant house-to-house registration to optimize the use of innovative technology.

Mamora said:

“That the TEACH approach entails the traditional method of vaccinating target populations using desk review of available data sources, identifying the vaccination sites and roll out.
