The Federal Government on Tuesday disclosed that the country has the capacity to store up to 400,000 doses of the expected Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

This was disclosed by the Executive Director of the National Primary Health Development Agency, Dr Faisal Shuaib during a tour of the National Strategic Cold Store in Abuja.

Nigeria is expected to receive over 100,000 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine by the end of January.

The Pfizer vaccines must be stored at the ultra-cold temperature of -70°C.

The NSCS houses three ultra-cold chain equipment.

According to Dr. Shuaib, The three pieces of equipment have a combined capacity of 2,100 litres and operate at a temperature of -85 degrees Celsius.

Recently the Director-General of the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), Babatunde Salako, in an interview with Punch Newspaper, said the country does not have enough freezers to store the Pfizer vaccine.
