Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said his administration has started making contacts with Covid vaccine manufacturers including Pfizer, Oxford–AstraZeneca, Moderna, amongst others.
He said the government planned to vaccinate up to 50 per cent of the population of Lagos to develop herd immunity to the virus.
The governor spoke on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme monitored by YABATECH RADIO.
Sanwo-Olu said the organised private sector have expressed interest to support the funding of the purchase of the vaccines asides from the ones planned by the Federal Government.
The governor had also said Lagosians can’t afford fresh lockdown and therefore urged them to adhere to all preventive protocols to curb the spread of the virus.
