Dr. Femi Akinola, a Lagos-based medical practitioner has called on Nigerians who have received the first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine to go for the second dose.
The physician, at the 2021 health and safety week programme said the virus may still continue to ravage the world for the next 10 years before it would finally disappear, PUNCH reports.
“Coronavirus is an unusual virus and it may last the next 10 years before it finally disappears from the world.
“So, Nigerians should go for the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as observing all the protocols of regular washing of hands with soap in running water, wearing of face masks and maintaining social or physical distancing,”
Akinola recalled how the entire world was locked down in 2020, and some countries are currently locked down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Vaccination is not really the cause of death or blood clot as being politically insinuated, but how the jab or injection is being administered.See Also
