Nigeria has produced two vaccines against the virus, which are set to undergo clinical trials and possible certification.

This was made known by Chairman of the Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha, at the briefing of the PTF in Abuja.

He said that the disclosure that Nigerian scientists have produced at least two local COVID-19 vaccines which are awaiting clinical trials and certification is significant. He called it a welcome development that will open a new vista in scientific breakthrough and will boost the morale and image of the medical industry in the country.

He , therefore, called on all relevant agencies to provide the required support and enabling environment for smooth conduct of the remaining protocols for the certification of these vaccines, with a view to encouraging and motivating other researchers.

He said the PTF would keep Nigerians posted with the number of persons vaccinated so far, even as the records showed that over seven million persons had been vaccinated in Africa.
