The national coordinator of the presidential taskforce on COVID-19 (PTF), Sani Aliyu yesterday revealed that Nigerians will get the COVID-19 vaccine free of charge.

He made this known during an appearance on Channel Television, as he said there is an assurance that over 40 million Nigerians will be vaccinated through the GAVI arrangement (a vaccine alliance created to ensure that any new COVID-19 vaccine would be shared equally between the world’s richest and poorest countries).

Sani Aliyu said;

“Yesterday, the president gave the PTF the mandate to proceed with preparations with regard to the vaccine.

“The president has also given us a marching order that the COVID-19 vaccine be available in Nigeria.

“Making use of the GAVI arrangement, we already have assurance that 20 percent of our population will be accommodated by GAVI in the vaccine.

“We don’t need to pay for that and this will cover 40 million Nigerians or so. But we have to pay for the operations and the logistics associated with it.”
