COVID-19 vaccine: Lagos targets 4 million residents

The Lagos State Government has launched a campaign geared towards ensuring four million residents of the state are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the end of the year.

The campaign tagged, “Count me in! 4 million Lagosians Vaccinated Against COVID-19 Campaign,’ was launched on Wednesday on the sidelines of the 7th African Conference on One Health and Biosecurity said the mass vaccination campaign would run till December 25.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said if the target vaccination of four million residents was achieved, the state would be closer to reaching his promise to vaccinate 30 per cent of the population within one year.

As of yesterday, Lagos had recorded over 77,000 cases out of over 211,000 cases in the country.

The governor said the vaccine remained free at public health centres while those that might desire to take the jabs at approved private centres would pay N6,000.

“This is to allow the private sector to recoup the resources they have deployed in the process of administering this vaccine,” he said.
