In spite of its controversial stand on the coronavirus disease pandemic, the Kogi State Government said about 102,000 residents have received first dose of COVID-19 vaccines during initial rounds of vaccination in the state.

Commissioner for Health, Dr Saka Audu, disclosed this at the flag-off of “Kogi State COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Campaign”, on Thursday in Lokoja.

Audu thanked Gov. Yahaya Bello, for ensuring the arrival and availability of the vaccines in the state without denying anyone from taking the jab if they so wished.

He assured that government would continue to provide the required avenue for all the eligible citizens of the state to have access to free, safe and effective vaccines.
