It is the most populous country in Africa but also one of the most lagging behind on the continent in vaccination against the coronavirus.

Solo about 3% of the Nigerian population have received both doses of vaccines against covid-19, a very low rate, even compared to other countries in Africa.

South Africa, for example, has 24% of the population fully vaccinated.

However, Nigeria has been reported to have a large stock of expired vaccines that you have not used. And that, according to the news agency Reuters, could reach a million doses.
