Country Spotlight: Worry about Catching COVID-19 in Nigeria

News and Updates

The percentage of respondents reporting “a great deal” of worry has been below 40% on the COVID Behaviors Dashboard for nearly a year (June 2021). With less than 10% of the population vaccinated against COVID-19 as of May 2022 and the potential for underreporting of cases contributing to inaccurate measures of the true toll of COVID-19, public health messaging and targeting vulnerable or hard to reach populations may be critical to successful vaccination campaigns. Nigeria has seen success in relying on its polio response network to deliver COVID-19 and other vaccines, indicating a valuable strategy for current and future pandemics.
