Following the fight of the Federal Government against the second wave of Covid-19, the National Agency For Food And Drug Administration Control NAFDAC has warned against fake Covid-19 vaccine.
According to the body, they have not received any application from Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers yet and therefore no vaccine has been approved by them. They made it known that Covid-19 vaccines are new and that they need to be closely monitored for any adverse effects. They further said that if they don’t approve the vaccine, the public cannot use it.
NAFDAC made it known that there are reports of fake Covid-19 vaccines in Nigeria, that Nigerians should beware because they have approved any vaccine.
They also said that both private and government agencies have no rights and should not order for Covid-19 vaccines without going through NAFDAC.
