The Lagos State Government has released a list of 183 centres approved to provide Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to citizens in the second phase of the national vaccination campaign.
The state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known through his Facebook account @ProfAkinolaAbayomi on Tuesday in Lagos.
Newsmen recall that Nigeria had on Aug. 1, received four million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine from the United States Government, as it ramps up efforts to fight a third wave of infections.
Lagos had received an allocation of 299,992 doses of the Moderna vaccines on Aug 18, for the second phase of the national vaccination campaign.
Abayomi said that the state’s second phase of COVID-19 vaccination would begin on Wednesday at the designated vaccination centres across the state.
According to him, residents who are 18 years and above, and have not received the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines are eligible for vaccination during this phase.
“They are to schedule their vaccination via the National Primary Health Care Development Agency vaccination registration platform https://nphcda.vaccination.gov.ng/.
“And choose their preferred vaccination centre among the 183 designated vaccination sites across the state,” he said.
Earlier, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, said that the state increased the number of centres from the 88 used during the first phase of the vaccination campaign to prevent the gathering of large crowds at the centres.
