She said that the figure reflected the vaccination stage from March, 2021, to October, 2022.
She told NAN that the target was to ensure that at least 1.5 million people were vaccinated by the end of December.
Ekpenyong, however, said that if the target was not met due to low turnout of residents, the agency would meet the target by the first quarter of 2023.
