The Federal Government of Nigeria has through The National Orientation Agency come out to clarify doubts from the minds of Nigerians that the Covid-19 Vaccines are Chip-free.
The National Orientation Agency (NOA), has spoken about this in a series of tweets released today, as part of things we should know about Covid-19 Vaccines. It read:
“Disregard claim that the #COVID19 vaccine contains a microchip. NAFDAC will certify the vaccine safe before being administered by the FMOH through NPHCDA.”
Other things stated about the Vaccines are that:
All vaccines receive approval from WHO. In addition to that, NAFDAC will certify any vaccine safe on human including COVID19 vaccine.
COVID19 vaccines aim to prevent the virus by triggering an immune response. If vaccinated, you are fully protected! Immunity you will get from COVID19 vaccination is scientifically proven to be effective.
Vaccination is the best protection and it is SAFE!
People with underlying medical conditions such as heart and lung diseases, diabetes or cancer have nothing to fear. COVID19 infection has more impact on them, hence the need to be vaccinated.
Mild side effects may occur as in any other vaccination. However, the vaccine has been proven to be effective and safe on humans.
NO Studies are yet to be conducted to ascertain safety of the vaccine if administered on pregnant or lactating mothers.
