The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Sunday warned Nigerians to be wary of fake COVID–19 vaccines in the country.
The NAFDAC also warned Nigerians to “refrain from procuring the vaccine online to avoid falling into the wrong hands of merchants of death.”
The agency warned Nigerians to be vigilant and expose anyone who might want to divert COVID-19 vaccines donated by international donors for profiteering.
The Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof Mojisola Adeyeye, issued the warning in a statement by its Resident Media Consultant, Sayo Akintola.
She said, “The public must be on the lookout for these spurious and counterfeit vaccines and other regulated products”, she warned.
