Clarifications On Russian-Made COVID-19 Vaccine.

Following an earlier press release made today, Friday, 4th September, 2020 on the courtesy visit by the Russian Federation’s Ambassador to Nigeria, H.E. Alexey L. Shebarshin to the Nigeria’s Health Ministers to hand over an aide memoire on the recently announced Russian-made COVID-19,  the Ministry’s Media and Public Relations Unit wishes to correct the impression that the Russian-made COVID-19 Vaccine has been handed over to the Health authorities in Nigeria.

What was handed over was an aide memoir to enable the Nigerian team study and get ready for further researches, patronage and application.  

The Russian-made COVID-19 being still in the custody of the Russian Federation’s Embassy in Nigeria, we have been corrected, to see it as still being with the Russians and not with the Nigerian health authorities.

Director, Information, Media and Public Relations.
