The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control has approved two more COVID-19 vaccines for use in Nigeria.
They are Moderna and the Sputnik vaccines. Both vaccines were approved for emergency use.
The Director-General of NAFDAC, Professor Moji Adeyeye, announced this on Thursday at a news conference in Abuja.
She explained that although the Sputnik vaccine has not yet been approved by the World Health Organisation, NAFDAC has carried out independent checks on the vaccine and found that the benefits outweigh the risks.
