“Vaccines are meant to help” – Health Expert Encourages Nigerians
The Chief Medical Director, Federal Teaching Hospital (FETHI), Ido-Ekiti, Ekiti State, Professor Adekunle Ajayi, a reknown health expert encourages Nigerians to accept the COVID-19 vaccine whenever it is available.
The health expert also cautioned Nigerians not to allow the discovery of the vaccine outshine the safety protocols.
Ajayi gave this admonition during a “Long Service Award” ceremony held for some health workers who have served for 20 years unblemished.
The CMD said the award was a call on the recipients to continue to contribute to the development of the teaching hospital.
Expressing concern over the attitudes of some Nigerians to safety procedures, Ajayi said apathy was the major challenge at the moment.
The medical expert, however, advised Nigerians to accept the vaccine as it would go a long way in combating the dreaded virus.
