Only those who fit into Phase One of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise in Lagos State will be attended to at the approved sites from Monday, the government has said.

Such persons include healthcare workers, COVID-19 Response Team (RRT), ports of entry staff, laboratory network, judiciary, military, police, other security agencies, petrol station workers, teachers, press, and other frontline workers, as well as those who are 70 years above.

The Commissioner for Health in Lagos, Professor Akin Abayomi, stated this on Sunday after reviewing the report of the weeklong phase one vaccination rollout campaign in the state.

He hinted that the exercise would resume on Monday at the 88 approved vaccination sites across the state after the weekend break.

Abayomi urged the eligible persons to observe and ensure strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols and instructions given by officials when they visit the vaccination sites.

He advised them to maintain a social distance of at least two meters, wear a face mask, and ensure proper hand hygiene at the centres.
