According to Shuaib, this is based on 2022 population estimates, indicating that only 46.3 million eligible Nigerians have not taken any of the COVID-19 vaccines.

It revealed that Adamawa State has also joined the list of 12 other states that have fully vaccinated more than 50 percent of their eligible population with COVID-19 vaccines.

Johnson and Johnson COVID-19

The NPHCDA chief also said that the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, introduced in February 2022, account for 60 percent of current total vaccination coverage across the country.

He stated that the top five performing states in the country’s COVID-19 mass vaccination campaign are Nasarawa, Jigawa, Osun, Kaduna and Kano.

Shuaib said Osun, Kaduna, Kebbi and Sokoto states have fully vaccinated at least half of their eligible population in the 100 days prior to the implementation of SCALES 3.0.

“The three best-performing states in the last 100 days of SCALES 3.0 are Kaduna, Kano, and Osun, with total vaccinations of 3.3, 2.8, and 2.5 million respectively,” he explained.

Integrated Vaccination Campaign

He said the 46.3 million Nigerians who have not yet been vaccinated should take advantage of the ongoing Integrated Vaccination Campaign to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“They can visit the nearest vaccination site.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is free to all eligible Nigerians at all designated sites across the country, including the FCT.

“Vaccination cards are also free and are given free only to those who get vaccinated at these sites,” he said. .
