COVID-19: Kogi receives 16,900 doses of AstraZeneca Vaccine (Updated: 1 year ago)


The Kogi State Government has taken delivery of about 16, 900 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The Executive Director, Kogi State Primary Health Care Development Agency (KSPHCDA), Dr. Abubakar Yakubu received the vaccine on Monday night.

Yakubu, while addressing reporters shortly after receiving the vaccines, said the most awaited COVID-19 vaccines arrived in the State from Abuja at about 7:40 pm.

He also stated that the inoculation exercise would be flagged off in Lokoja on Tuesday, April 6.

“The first line of recipients of the vaccines are the health workers… The vaccine administration will be followed by the first line workers like the police, military, NSCDC, Customs officials, among others,” he said.

He disclosed that the ministry of health was ready to embark on sensitization on the need for the vaccination, adding that the state was lagging behind compared to others.

The Executive Director noted that the state was initially expecting about 45,000 doses of the vaccine from the NPHCDA, which accounted for one percent of the state’s total population.

“However, to our surprise, we are being supplied with 16,900 doses now. I think there will be further reconciliation to send the balance of the doses as soon as possible,” he said.
