…Urge Residents Not To Loose Guard
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Malma Muhammad Musa Bello on Thursday led other top management staff of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to take their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at FCTA Secretariat on Thursday in Area 11 Garki, Abuja.
He, however, called on FCT residents not to loose their guard because they have taken their second jab of COVID-19 vaccines .
According to him “Even though we are testing massively, but the incidences of positive cases have been coming low.
“But the fact that we have taken the vaccine, and a lot of our citizens have been inoculated or vaccinated doesn’t mean that we should loose our guard. Let’s continue to work very hard and pray to God almighty to continue to protect the FCT from COVID-19.
“Please let’s get vaccinated, because unless we get substantial number of our population fully vaccinated to the level whereby we can say the incidence of this particular disease have been conquered, we head no where.”
He further stated that , “I took my second dose of vaccination against COVID-19. I recall that I took the first jab on Thursday, 11th of March, 2021, and according to the health regulations, after twelve weeks I would have been due for the second jab which I took now.
“And I’m so pleased that from March 11 till date, when the FCT Administration rolled out its vaccination programme against COVID19, we have been able to vaccinate a substantial number of people, almost 98% of the doses allocated to the FCT.
“During the last few days, those who got the first jab have been taking their second one”, he stated.
He, however, assured that with the support of the very dedicated workers of the Health Secretariat, we will continue to work to ensure that every resident of the FCT is protected against COVID-19.
He said, he will continue to provide needed support in our hospital system, even if COVID-19 is over, at least it has helped us to improve on our capacity for oxygen.
“Already, our two oxygen plants have been almost concluded in rehabilitation. Going forward, I will appeal to all of you especially those of you in the health Secretariat to continue to work hard like you have done, and maintain all the facility that have been established for the purpose of this pandemic, so as to ensure that we will be very prepared”.
