Again, LASG Kicks off Fight Against Covid-19

INSIDEMAINLAND – The Lagos State Government, in collaboration with the Federal Government, has commenced the COVID-19 Scales 3.0 vaccination campaign targeted to vaccinate the rest of the population against the COVID-19 virus.

According to a statement on Tuesday, the state Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, disclosed this during the commencement of the event in Ikeja.

Abayomi, who was represented at the event by the Permanent Secretary, National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Akinwummi Mustapha, explained that Scales 3.0 is a three-month strategy to accelerate COVID-19 vaccination in the state, adding that it is important for all eligible persons, aged 18 years and above, to get the jabs in order to halt the renewed spread of the virus.

He said, In collaboration with the FG, we have flagged off the COVID-19 Scales 3.0 vaccination campaign aimed at vaccinating the rest of the population against the COVID-19 virus.

“The state government has developed a robust vaccination strategy leveraging the strength of public-private partnership and COVID-19 vaccines are still available in designated public and private health facilities in the 57 Local Governments/Local Council Development Areas in the state where first, second and booster doses are administered.”

The representative of the World Health Organisation and the COVID-19 Vaccination Coordination and Routine Immunisation Focal Person, Sherifat Lawal, noted that Lagos has reached a remarkable stretch of vaccinating 20 per cent of residents, but there is a need to increase the figures.
