Nigeria on Thursday vaccinated additional 14,843 persons, bringing the total number of vaccinated people in the country to 1,148,168.

This is barely two months after the country began vaccination having received 3.94 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines through COVAX, a UN-backed effort that promises access to free vaccines for up to 20 per cent of participating countries’ population.

Newsmen report that the country has conducted 1,870,915 COVID-19 tests since the beginning of the pandemic in Feb 27 2020.
