The Federal Government, on Monday, said everyone remains vulnerable to contracting the dreaded COVID-19 virus except vaccinated.

The Chairman of Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, made this known on Monday, during a sensitisation meeting on COVID-19 vaccine with leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

Sighting the recent surge in the coronavirus cases and deaths across the country, Mustapha urged Nigerians to accept the vaccine in order to restore normalcy.

Boss Mustapha, who maintained that the arrival of the vaccine brought hope of an end to the health crisis, said COVID-19 fatalities had increased by 34 per cent since the second wave was declared in December.

According to him: “As a nation, our national response has been very robust with significant positive results because we deployed non-pharmaceutical interventions, testing, detection and treatment as a strategy. For risk communication, the PTF mounted its outreach using several channels including the faith-based organisations such as the CAN.

‘‘I wish to make it abundantly clear that nobody is safe around the world until everyone is vaccinated. That is why we are now gathered here today, to sensitise you and seek your inputs on the strategy to be jointly adopted and the role you will play in carrying the message on vaccines to all adherents of the Christian faith.”
