The Covid-19 immunization officer for Rivers State has expressed dissatisfaction with how officials in the oil-rich state have run out of seals that must be affixed to everyone's card who has taken part in the ongoing vaccination program to stop the spread of the pandemic disease known as Covid-19 across the country.
According to BBC News Pigin, the information was given to their reporters by Mr Joseph Urang, who is currently the Immunization Officer for Delta State. Mr Joseph Urang confirmed to their BBC reporters that at least 50,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccination had already been administered to residents in the state during his meeting with them.
Among the 50,000 individuals who have been vaccinated in the state, 40,000 have received proof that they have been vaccinated, while the remaining 10,000 people have not received any confirmation that they have been vaccinated.

He went on to say that this was due to the fact that they were only given 40,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine, which resulted in the same number of seals being given as well. During the immunization, it was revealed that an additional 10,000 people had been given the vaccine without a seal to put on their cards to demonstrate that they had been vaccinated.
