About 12,000 FCT residents have received their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The minister of State for the FCT Dr. Ramatu Aliyu, disclosed this when she openly took the second jab with her aides at the weekend.
She commended the turnout of residents since the commencement of the medical exercise across the territory.
According to her, ” The FCT Administration has vaccinated over132,000 residents in the first round and about 12,000 recorded in the second round.
“I wish to also encourage all residents to check their cards, for those who have taken their first jab, after 40 days or 6 weeks you are qualified for a second jab.
“Please turn out en mass to take the second jab, there is nothing wrong with it and you will only be better and free to transact business and do every other thing across the world”.
On whether the vaccine was capable of causing infertility in both men and women, the minister stated that though every vaccine has its own adverse reaction, but it is not true that the COVID-19 vaccine could lead to infertility.
“Well there are always vaccine reactions, but that does not mean that it is true. We know it is not true, so just come out and be encouraged to take your vaccination.
“The question of bearing children lies in the hands of God, and in any case who is promising you that if you don’t take the vaccine you will get children? Well it’s left for you to judge”.
