The federal government has approved Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja as the only entry point for COVID-19 vaccines.
It warned that arrival of vaccine at any other airport will not be allowed but would confiscated by the Customs and impounded by NAFDAC.
Meanwhile, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has revealed that it is expecting three types of vaccines for Nigerians.
This was disclosed by Minister of State for Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora, during a PTF briefing on COVID-19 on Monday in Abuja.
Mamora said that vaccine deployment would be done by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) until further notice.
“Vaccines from any other sources must first have NAFDAC’s Emergency Use Authorisation and they are not covered under the indemnification arrangement”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“Such vaccines will be illegal and subject to be impounded by NAFDAC and Customs. All vaccines coming into Nigeria will arrive only through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja,” he added.
