Lagos State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday confirmed that the state received its own consignment of doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines from the Federal Government.
Sanwo-Olu disclosed this while speaking at the 2021 International Women’s Day celebration organised by the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation held at Police College, Ikeja.
According to him, the state government received the vaccines at 4 am on Tuesday, noting that the vaccines had been kept in a safe place.
This was just as he assured Lagosians that the state government would soon commence the vaccinations in line with the scheduled guidelines laid down by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).
The governor also implored Lagosians to continue to keep to all the COVID-19 protocols like wearing facemasks, washing and sanitising their hands and observing social distance.
