Prof Tomori receiving the COVID-19 vaccine jab in Abuja
A virologist and Chairman Ministerial Expert Advisory Committee on COVID-19, Prof Oyewale Tomori has urged Africa to find solutions to health challenges bedeviling the continent.
Prof Tomori who stated this after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine at the area two family health centre, Abuja, said Europe invested in the COVID-19 Vaccine because it is a global health threat.
Prof Tomori expressed satisfaction with the vaccination and urged Nigerians to disregard the fake news of the side effects of the vaccine.
The virologist however warned that the Vaccine only prevents COVID-19 infections from becoming a disease, hence the need to keep to the preventive protocols even after the vaccination.
Prof Tomori urged state Governments to be more committed to the implementation of the COVID-19 vaccination just as the federal government has done.
