The Nigerian Government has disclosed that it will begin coronavirus vaccination in churches and other Christian worship centres.

The Executive Director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), Faisal Shuaib on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, stated that the agency has introduced ‘Sunday Vaccination’ as part of the second phase of the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out.

She made this known while addressing Christian leaders about the need for coronavirus vaccination, in Abuja.

“Your Eminence, the CAN President (Samson Ayokunle), distinguished Christian leaders, ladies, and gentlemen, I am glad to inform you that from this Phase 2 of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, we have introduced 'Sunday Vaccination'.

“This is to ensure members of the Christian community who may not have had access to the vaccine for whatever reason are given an opportunity to be vaccinated at their worship places.

“I must say that feedback from the field is very encouraging and I sincerely thank all Christian leaders who have given the vaccination team access to their churches and their members to receive COVID-19 vaccine during Sunday service,” she stated.
