COVID-19 Vaccine: Lagos Targets 60 Per Cent Rollout, Engages Pfizer

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has revealed the State Government’s plan on Coronavirus COVID-19 vaccine rollout and the effort to bolster mass vaccination of the State’s residents.

Lagos, Sanwo-Olu disclosed, is aiming to achieve 60 per cent vaccine rollout when the vaccination programme commences in the coming weeks, stressing that the figure would help check rate of transmission and build the resilience of the State against the ravaging virus.

The Governor spoke on “Sunday Politics”, a live television programme anchored by Channels TV’s Kayode Okikiolu

He also spoke on activities of his Government since inception and other germane issues around the development of Lagos.

Sanwo-Olu said the State Govt did not have the plan to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to all residents, as the State may not have the resources to do that; he said critical segments in the State population would be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity against the pandemic.
