The Federal Government has on Monday stated that Nigerians who received the COVID-19 vaccine outside the country will still be tested upon arriving in the country.
Minister of State for Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora made this known during an interview on the Channels Television program.
The health minister said getting vaccinated does not mean that one can not get the infection.
They need to produce evidence of taking a PCR test within the estimated time limit when they come into the country. Also, having been vaccinated does not absolutely say that you can’t get the infection. What the vaccine guarantees are that if you get the infection, you are not likely to succumb. The fact that you got a vaccine is no license for you to down your guard. These things we have said will still be in place in terms of non-pharmaceutical interventions,” he stated.
