COVID-19: NPHCDA begins registration of Nigerians for vaccination
Ahead of the arrival of first batch of COVID-19 vaccines in Nigeria, the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) has commenced online registration of the citizens for vaccination.
The first instalment of COVID-19 vaccines is expected to arrive in the country on Tuesday.
The agency disclosed this in a series of tweets on its Twitter handle – @NphcdaNG – on Monday.
In one of the tweets, the Executive Director of NPHCDA, Faisal Shuaib, said Nigerians are expected to register for COVID-19 vaccines themselves, obtain their pre-vaccination numbers and schedule their preferred date for the exercise.
He wrote: “We have provided an e-registration link to enable Nigerians (to) register for the #COVID19Vaccine themselves, obtain their pre-vaccination numbers and schedule their preferred date and time for vaccination.”
Recall that the Federal Government had urged Nigerians to register for Covid-19 vaccination as the country prepares to take delivery of some doses of the jab.
The e-registration would be done via the portal of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).
“Please visit the website http://nphcda.gov.ng and click on ‘COVID-19 Vaccination e-registration’ to register for #COVID19 vaccination,” the FG said in a tweet.
