NAFDAC approves use of Moderna And Sputnik COVID-19 vaccines

The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control has approved the use of Moderna and Sputnik COVID-19 vaccines in Nigeria.

Director-General of NAFDAC, Professor Moji Adeyeye who made the announcement on Thursday July 15, said the vaccines were approved for emergency use.

Professor Adeyeye noted that though Sputnik vaccine which is produced in Russia has not yet been approved by the World Health Organisation, NAFDAC has carried out independent checks on the vaccine and found that the benefits outweigh the risks.

The agency had earlier approved the Oxford-Astrazeneca and Pfizer jabs, also for emergency use.
