    Those in the health and security sectors have been advised to be given priority, as well as the elderly.
    The agency noted that the COVID-19 vaccine, expected to be administered in January and February, would be done in compliance with WHO standards.
    The agency said the government is targeting administering the vaccine on 40 per cent of Nigerians during the first batch this year and 30per cent is expected to be done in 2022.
