Ogun Governor, Dapo Abiodun Receives COVID-19 Vaccine


Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun and his deputy Noimot Salako-Oyedele, have taken their first dose of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine

The governor took the vaccine at the Governor’s office in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the state capital alongside two frontline health workers.

On Monday, the Ogun State government took delivery of 50,000 doses of the first batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Governor Abiodun received the vaccines and gave an assurance that the vaccines would be deployed immediately across the 236 wards of the 20 local governments of the state.

“Taking our doses is, first, service to self then to people, because we can only silence the virus if we think and act together. We should be aware that even our two doses don’t preclude the use of facemasks and compliance with other safety guidelines,” Abiodun said after taking the vaccine.

The governor, therefore, urged everyone all to make themselves available to take the vaccine, especially those prioritised by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) on basis of profession, age, or other criteria.
