As the globe tries to contain the new Omicron variant, the Federal Government has approved COVID-19 booster doses.

Mohammad Ohitoto, the head of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency’s public relations unit, announced this in a statement on Friday.

The booster shots were for patients who had already received the first and second doses of AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer Bio-N-Tech, or one dosage of Johnson & Johnson vaccines, according to Ohitoto.

Booster doses can be given six months or longer after getting the second dose of AstraZeneca, Moderna, or Pfizer Bio-N-Tech vaccines, according to Shuaib.

Meanwhile, the agency’s Executive Director, Dr. Faisal Shuaib, stated that the booster dosages were for persons aged 18 and over.

“It also requires a time interval of two months or more after receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

“Eligible Nigerians are therefore advised to go to the closest health facility/mass vaccination sites nationwide for the booster doses starting from December 10.

“COVID-19 booster dose gives greater protection against the virus, and I urge all Nigerians to take advantage of the opportunity offered by the Federal Government,” he said.
