FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, while receiving second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

Dr Ramatu Aliyu, the Minister of State, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) says no fewer than 12,000 residents have taken the second round of COVID-19 vaccine since the exercise started.

A statement by the minister’s Special Assistant on Media, Mr Austine Elemue, made this known in Abuja on Sunday.

Aliyu, who spoke after she publicly took her second jab, commended the turnout of FCT residents, saying 132,000 residents took the first jab.

She, however, admonished residents who took the first jab of the vaccine to go for the second.

“I wish to also encourage all residents to check their cards for those who have taken their first jab, after 40 days or six weeks you are qualified for a second jab.

“Please turn out in mass to take the second jab, there is nothing wrong with it and you will only be better and free to transact business and do every other thing across the world.’’
