Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, said that coronavirus vaccination will commence in the state this weekend.
The state had on Tuesday received the first consignment of 507,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines provided by the Federal Government.
Sanwo said a steering committee was in its final stage of preparation for the deployment of the vaccine, adding that there’s a clear-cut strategy for the vaccine distribution.
He disclosed this when he received the country representative of the World Health Organization, Dr Walter Mulombo, at the State House, Alausa.
“We have instituted a steering committee for the vaccine administration, which comprises health practitioners in the public and private sectors. They have designed a robust vaccine implementation strategy and they have identified various segments of our citizens who need to get first and in what order,” he was quoted by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile.
