President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo have received a shot of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Saturday.
The vaccine was administered by the president’s personal physician, while the vice-president’s vaccine was also administered by his personal physician.
Chairman of the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, told the gathering that a COVID-19 vaccination certificate would “very soon” become a requirement for travels, across the world.
Governors will receive theirs on Wednesday.

Executive director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Faisal Shuaibu has said a study revealed that 50 per cent of Nigerians would take the vaccine, adding that priority would be given to frontline health workers, the elderly and the vulnerable.
