FG Warns against Uncertified Vaccine for COVID-19

The Federal Government has warned Nigerians against patronising uncertified liquid COVID-19 vaccine being hawked in Kano.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed gave the warning at a media briefing of the Presidential Task Force on the Control of COVID-19.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) also refuted claims of the liquid mixture in a tweet on its official handle on Wednesday, describing the claim as false.
