Ignore False Rumour, COVID-19 Vaccine Is Safe - Minister

Honourable Minister of State, Power, Goddy Jedy Agba, OFR, after taking his covid-19 vaccine 

Minister of State, Power, Goddy Jedy Agba, OFR, has asked Nigerians to ignore the false speculations flying around that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is not safe.

The Minister who stated this after taking his first dose of the vaccine on Tuesday in Abuja urged Nigerians to present themselves for vaccination as it was safe and effective. 

Agba said that the COVID-19 pandemic is not a joke therefore those building conspiracy theories around the vaccine for cheap political reasons were doing the country great deservice. 

According to him, "I've taken my first dose of the vaccine and have not experienced any of the things we hear people talk about. I took it and left for work not my house. The vaccine is safe and effective".

While warning those spreading false rumour about the vaccine to stop, he added that "I want to appeal to Nigerians to present themselves for vaccination. The President himself and the Vice President have been vaccinated. Let's follow their examples. 

Before the vaccine was approved for use, it went through different stages of laboratory testing and was considered good enough. It's quite unfortunate that in Nigeria, we play politics with everything including people's lives.

Those speculating these conspiracies theories have not presented any facts to support their arguments that the vaccine is not effective or safe. The facts we have points to the contrary, instead".
