The Lagos State Government says it will resume the administration of the second dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on Aug. 30.
Mr Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, Director, Public Affairs in the state Ministry of Health, said this in a statement on Sunday in Lagos.
Ogunbanwo said that administration of the second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine would hold across the 88 vaccination sites used during the first phase of the vaccination exercise.
According to him, the vaccination will be for 20 days, from Aug. 30 to Sept. 24.
He said that only persons who had received the first jab of the vaccine during the first phase of the AstraZeneca vaccination excercise in the state were eligible for the exercise.
The director advised eligible persons to present their vaccination cards between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the vaccination sites to get vaccinated.
“There is no need for e-registration for this category of people,” he said.
He warned against mixing one brand of vaccine with another brand, saying it was not allowed.
