The state said it has come out of the 2nd wave of the pandemic successfully.
The State government acted following the directive of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, NPHCDA, that States should stop vaccination after administering half of the doses supplied to them to give opportunity for the second dose of the already vaccinated persons.
The first phase of the exercise which began in Lagos on March 12, 2021 took an average of 20 days. In a press statement signed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi said the completed exercise would ensure that at least 1 per cent of Lagos residents receive the full complement of doses required to enable the protection the vaccine promises.
He said the target to achieve effective herd immunity was the vaccination of at least 60 per cent of the Lagos State population.
Meanwhile, 65 new cases of COVID-19 was reported today by the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), totalling 164,488 cases in the country.
