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.
