Shuaib made the disclosure in a chat with The Guardian, disclosing that the Federal Government plans to use the vaccines to inoculate 40% of the population in 2021 and a further 30% in 2022.

Shuaib stated that certain groups of people will be the first to receive the vaccines when they arrive, noting that those first in line for the vaccine include health workers and other identified frontline workers in the country.

He also stated that the elderly (50 years and above), and persons less than 50 years but with co-morbid conditions and areas with high disease burden will be prioritised.

He revealed that the government has enough vaccine freezers and refrigerators to store both at the ultra-cold chain temperatures and the normal + 2 to + 8.
