This survey collected second wave data of COVID-19 on the Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) of Nigerians in controlling the spread of the virus in all the 37 states (including Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory) of Nigeria. Similarly, the dataset provided insight into the Nigerians’ attitude to accept the COVID-19 vaccine in all the 37 states of the country. There was total of 2095 responses with neither unit non-response nor item non-response. It is expected that this dataset would help to conduct comparative analysis of Nigerians’ KAP of the first wave of COVID-19 to the second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

Similarly, the presidential new year speech [3] declared the FGN’s intention to procure COVID-19 vaccine for use in the country. This survey was conducted between February 13, 2021 and March 16, 2021. The dataset is a collection of responses from 2095 respondents using the Google online survey form. The survey used snowball sampling selection method and the survey Unifirm Resource Locator (URL) or link was broadcast through the internet. Primarily, the service of a social media advitiser was employed to advertize the survey URL, objectives and scope on Facebook advertisement campaign system in order to reach all the 37 states (the 36 states and the FCT) in Nigeria. In addition, a designed e-poster that revealed the survey objectives, scope and URL was broadcast on the social media like WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, Telegram and the individual Facebook page. The survey description, objectives, procedure, voluntary nature of participant, declaration of confidentiality and anonymity of the respondent were shown on the first (welcome) page of the Google online survey questionnaire.
