The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control warns Nigerians to be wary of fake COVID-19 vaccines in the country.
The organisation also warns Nigerians to “refrain from procuring the vaccine online to avoid falling into the wrong hands of merchants of death.
The agency warned Nigerians to be vigilant and expose anyone who might want to divert COVID-19 vaccines donated by international donors for profiteering.
The Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof Mojisola Adeyeye, issued the warning in a statement by its Resident Media Consultant, Sayo Akintola.
No fewer than 5,000 health personnel in the Federal Capital Territory will receive the COVID-19 vaccines today and Tuesday.
The frontline workers would be given the jabs at the Asokoro District Hospital, Abuja, where the vaccination would be inaugurated by the FCT Minister, Mohammed Bello.
