The Director, National Orientation Agency (NAO) in Enugu State, Mr Isaac Onukwube has advised the residents of the state to disregard rumors of death resulting from COVID-19 vaccine.

He said, “the vaccine is real and safe, the arguments whether it is real or infectious is done to discourage people from taking the vaccine.

“The rumor that the vaccine is Programmed to reduce Nigerian population or has side effect is nothing but fake news.
“Nigeria is not different from the entire world hit by COVID-19, so people should forget about the conspiracy theory about the vaccine.

He stated that, “The vaccine has been subjected to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) check and this is old conspiracy theory. “This vaccine is the only protection we need in order to run away from the pandemic already in the country.

“The limited number of the vaccine has made them to prioritize on who should get it first. We are starting from the frontline workers before other citizens, Onukwube said.

The Director said that, intensive campaign has started to create awareness about the vaccine in the communities and encourage them to embrace it.
He further said, the Agency would engage religious, Community leaders and traditional rulers on the need to propagate the information on the safety of the vaccine to their followers.
