Dr Ngong Cyprian Makes History As First Person To Take COVID-19 Vaccine In Nigeria

A medical doctor, Ngong Cyprian, has become the first person to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Nigeria.

Dr Cyprian has been a frontline health worker since March 2020 – days after the first case of the disease was reported in the country.

He took the jab on Friday in Abuja at the flag-off of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise in Nigeria, an event organised by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).

“You can see, I just took the vaccine now and I feel good. I have dreamt of taking the vaccine and I have taken the vaccine today. We’ve been at the forefront of the COVID-19 fight here in National Hospital at the Isolation Centre under the able leadership of the National Hospital,” said the medical doctor.
