The Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) says Nigeria does not have enough freezers to store thousands of doses of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine when they are delivered to the country.
Nigeria would this month receive 100,000 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine which is required to be stored at minus 70 degrees Celsius.
Speaking in an interview , Babatunde Salako, NIMR director-general, said while there are freezers in the country suitable for storing the vaccines, they are currently occupied with other medical supplies that require low-temperature storage.
