November 2021: Nigeria begins mass Covid-19 drive

Nigeria began a mass vaccination campaign on November 19. The country aims to inoculate 50% of its targeted population—55 million people—by the end of January 2022, despite having achieved only 2.9% coverage as of the campaign launch. To reach the ambitious goal, officials plan vaccine mandates for government employees, specifically those in federal ministries, departments, and agencies, as well as methods for combating hesitancy in rural areas to increase coverage.
