Be Prepared For Seven-day Isolation In UK, FG Tells Nigerian Travellers

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency has said Nigerians travelling to Britain will still be isolated for seven days as UK Government is yet to comprehensively review Nigeria’s vaccination certification programme.

The Executive Director of NPHCDA, Dr Faisal Shuaib, disclosed this on Tuesday at a briefing on the progress of COVID-19 vaccination in Nigeria.

Shuaib said the vaccines administered in Nigeria were approved by the UK Government.

He noted that the UK officials were also involved with the vaccination programme in Nigeria through the Foreign, Commonwealth Development Office.

The Executive Director of NPHCDA said the agency was optimistic that by the time Nigeria’s COVID-19 vaccination programme certification was assessed, it would be approved by the UK government.

He said, “Nigeria’s status has not changed. Nigeria is not among the listed countries that need mandatory quarantine for 14 days in a supervised UK facility.

“The statement released by the UK Government is in line with the statement released last week that Nigerians will continue to isolate upon arrival to the UK. This is similar to our requirement to have travellers from the UK isolate for seven days upon arrival in Nigeria.
