The Lagos State Government through the Commissioner for Health in the state has announced that the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines are now available at the designated public and private vaccination centres across the state.
The Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this information through his official Instagram account, also including the receipt of a new batch of vaccines from the National Primary Healthcare Board.
The commissioner has urged all eligible Lagos residents to proceed to designated public and private vaccination centres to get vaccinated. In addition, he announced the availability of booster doses in all designated public and private vaccination centres across the state.
“Administration of vaccines in public vaccination centres are free of charge. However, vaccination at private centres with the administration of two doses of COVID-19 vaccine will attract a service charge of N6,000 while one dose will attract N4,500,” the commissioner stated.
“Lagos State Ministry of Health wishes to again reassure Lagos residents and the general public that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective,” he added.
This development comes after the state government confirmed the non-availability of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at all vaccination centres in the state and requested understanding from the public after the non-availability of the vaccine in the state was reported.
