How to register for COVID-19 vaccination

National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) has launched an online registration portal for Nigerians eligible in taking COVID-19 vaccination ahead of the first batch of Astrazeneca vaccine which will arrive the country on Tuesday.

Faisal Shuaibu, executive director of NPHCDA, disclosed this at the launching of TEACH strategy for the COVID-19 vaccine introduction in Nigeria on Tuesday Abuja

Shuaib said: “We have provided an e-registration link to enable Nigerians to register for the COVID-19 vaccine themselves, obtain their pre-vaccination numbers and schedule their preferred date and time for vaccination.

“To register for COVID-19 vaccination, visit our website,” he said.

Shuaib further stressed that in the first phase of the vaccination, healthcare workers, frontline workers, including the military, police, oil and gas workers, Nigerians at the border posts, and strategic leaders among others will be prioritised.

At the event, a female healthcare professional, Osindeinde Abodede, who followed the registration process emerged as the first person to register for the vaccination.

“Congratulations, Mrs. Osindeinde Ademilayo Abosede, a frontline health care professional. She is the first to register for the COVID-19 vaccination,” the registration message read.
