The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing said “The UK is committed to global access to vaccines, and is among the largest funders to COVAX. The UK has donated 1.2 million vaccines specifically to Nigeria through COVAX and will continue to provide support.

She said, she would like to emphasise that any statements that COVID-19 vaccines administered in
Nigeria are not approved by the UK are completely untrue. The UK recognises the Oxford-Astra Zeneca, Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccines used in Nigeria, irrespective of where they are manufactured”.

Speaking about rules concerning international travel to the UK, the High Commissioner said:
“The UK is committed to opening up international travel and the UK is using COVID-19 vaccination certification process to enable those wishing to enter the UK to do so safely.

From 4 October, the current system will be simplified. There will be a single red list of countries and territories where stricter rules apply, and there will also be a “rest of the world” list, with simplified travel measures. The “rest of the world” list will include countries currently on the UK’s amber list, such as Nigeria.

Travel rules are kept under regular review and people planning to travel to the UK should
regularly check the latest information.
