Prof Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff to the President, on Monday, March 8, took his first dose of the Covid-19 Astrazeneca vaccine at the State House Clinic.
The beginning phase of the national vaccination drive focuses on frontline health workers, supporting staff, and strategic leaders. The vaccine was rolled out at the National hospital Abuja on Friday, March 5.
Speaking after receiving the injection at the State House Clinic, the Chief of Staff described his painless experience.
He, therefore, encouraged Nigerians to take the vaccine and prevent the spread of the virus.
Gambari thanked the Permanent Secretary, frontline healthcare workers in the Clinic for organizing and ensuring this vaccination exercise and the State House.
According to the Chief of staff, the experience in receiving the vaccine was almost painless. He mentioned that he is just following the footstep of his leader, his Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari.
The president demonstrated leadership at the highest level by receiving the vaccine, followed by his Excellency, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
‘I want to encourage eligible Nigerians to take the vaccine because it is safe, painless and the benefits are immense.
‘It is not just for the individual, but the more Nigerians are vaccinated, the more we develop the herd immunity which will keep our country safe and our people healthy.”
Several Presidential aides and frontline State House medical staff took the first shots of the vaccine after the Chief of Staff.
It is expected that senior government officials and the others below are meant to take their shots at the State House Clinic in the days to come:
The Head of Service
Chief Justice of Nigeria
Heads of paramilitary agencies.
We look forward to the masses receiving the vaccine because most likely, the availability of the vaccine should help in reducing the spread of the virus.
