The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) has started online registration of Nigerians interested in taking COVID-19 vaccination before the first batch of the vaccines arrive the country on Tuesday.
NPHCDA, on Monday, announced this in a series of messages posted on social media.
One of the messages cited the agency’s Executive Director, Faisal Shuaib, as saying, “We have provided an e-registration link to enable Nigerians (to) register for the #COVID19Vaccine themselves, obtain their pre-vaccination numbers and schedule their preferred date and time for vaccination.”

NPHCDA also clearly stated that in the first phase of the inoculation, health care workers, frontline workers, including the military, police, oil and gas workers, Nigerians at the border posts, and strategic leaders among others will be given priority.
In another message, the agency stated that Osindeinde Abodede, a female health care professional, came out as the first person to register for the vaccination.
The message read, “Congratulations, Mrs. Osindeinde Ademilayo Abosede, a frontline health care professional. She is the first to register for the #COVID19 Vaccination.”
In accordance with the test message got by the health care worker when she completed her registration, which was attached to the tweet, she was booked to be vaccinated on March 12, 2021 between 10am and 12 noon in Abuja.
