“The vaccine has been declared safe by the WHO and I want to encourage everyone to take it as we begin vaccination in Lagos.

“To manage the process, we have set up a team of healthcare, distribution and security professionals.

“Vaccination will begin at 88 designated locations for Phase 1 which consists of medical workers, police, military, laboratory, port health, judiciary and rapid response teams.

“Over the next couple of days, we will be vaccinating our frontline health workers at 3 centres to ensure we are protecting our selfless and hardworking frontline heroes.”

The governor, however, commended health workers in the state, urging them to continue to do their best in saving lives.
