FG Speaks On COVID-19 Vaccine Containing Microchip
The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has said the COVID-19 vaccine which the Federal Government will order, does not contain a microchip.
NOA made this clarification in a series of tweets on Sunday.
On whether the COVID-19 vaccine contained a microchip, the Federal Government’s agency said the Ministry of Health would certify the vaccine safe before being administered.
It said, “No! COVID-19 vaccine does not contain any harmful substance or micro-chip. All vaccines including COVID-19 vaccines are manufactured under strict compliance with WHO guidelines.
“Also, before the vaccine is administered in Nigeria, NAFDAC will test and certify it is safe for human use.”
On whether the vaccine could infect with COVID-19, NOA said, “The vaccine will be subjected to laboratory examinations to ensure it is safe before being administered to humans.
“No! the vaccine cannot infect you with COVID-19. It is meant to protect you from COVID-19 infection. Once your vaccination doses are complete, you become protected.”
