COVID-19: Medical Centre postpones 2nd phase of Vaccination
By Leye Abiola
The University of Lagos Medical Centre has announced the postponement of the second phase of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise.
This was made known in a statement released by the Acting Director, Medical services, Dr. Mrs. O. O. Coker in the early hours of today titled, 'Postponement of Phase 2 COVID-19 vaccination exercise in University of Lagos'.
In the statement, the Medical centre indicated that the postponement was necessary as the vaccines were yet to be received from the Lagos State Ministry of Health.
The statement read, "The Medical centre wishes to announce the postponement of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise which was to commence on Monday 23rd, August, 2021."
"This is because the COVID-19 vaccines to be administered are yet to be received by the Lagos state ministry of health who are responsible for the deployment of vaccination centres within Lagos state."
The director enjoined the university public to continue to adhere to the existing COVID-19 guidelines, adding that it would require a 'collective effort'.
The medical centre had earlier announced a second phase of vaccination which was supposed to have commenced today.
