The Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, has said President Muhammadu Buhari; Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; and other prominent Nigerians will be part of the first set to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on live television to help drive awareness.

He made this known at the weekly press briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday, “On Tuesday, I mentioned that we will like to see a situation where Mr President, the Vice President, the SGF, critical leaders come and take the vaccine in full glare of the public to demonstrate that this vaccine is safe.

“So, we have to make provisions for those. But even in developed countries, what we have seen is that apart from the prioritisation of health workers, you have to also identify critical leaders that you don’t want them to be wiped off by the virus.”

Shuaib said experience had shown that vaccines are always better than health immunity.

He said for COVID-19, if health immunity is to be relied upon, many people would have died because it would take approximately 10 years for one to be able to achieve health immunity.
