The Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, FCT in Nigeria, Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu has received her second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, just as she called on residents to follow suit.
The minister who used the occasion to commend the turnout of residents since the commencement of the medical exercise, also revealed that the FCT Administration has vaccinated over132,000 residents in the first round and about 12,000 recorded in the second round.
While fielding questions from journalists on the allegation that 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 was false that the COVID-19 vaccine could lead to infertility.
According to her, “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.
Others vaccinated include the minister’s husband, Tijjani Aliyu, top Directors of the Administration and her political aides.
