The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 says it is expecting three types of vaccines for Nigerian People.
The federal government has approved Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja as the only entry point.
Minister of State for Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora, spoke at the PTF briefing on COVID-19 on Monday in Abuja.
Mamora said for now, there will be no need for ungoverned private importation of vaccines.
Vaccine deployment would be done by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) until further notice.
Mamora added that all manufacturers would require an official indemnification to be able to administer their product in Nigeria.
“Vaccines from any other sources must first have NAFDAC’s Emergency Use Authorisation and they are not covered under the indemnification arrangement”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“Such vaccines will be illegal and subject to be impounded by NAFDAC and Customs. All vaccines coming into Nigeria will arrive only through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja,” he added.
The federal government warned that arrival of vaccines at any other airport will not be allowed but would be confiscated by the Customs.
