Since the first Omicron cases were detected on Nov. 27 in the United Kingdom, Johnson has imposed tougher restrictions and on Sunday cautioned that the variant could overcome the immune defences of those inoculated with two shots of vaccines.

According to a statement by the Press  Officers, Ogun State Primary Health Care Development Board,  Adesola Ogunbanwo and  Yemisi Fashola, indicated that the State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker, disclosed this in Abeokuta during a press briefing with newsmen, adding that the state had so far recorded no fatal adverse effects following Immunisation among vaccinated persons.

The government said this in reaction to a question from a Twitter user, @idowudotun, who wondered why the state was yet to commence vaccination even after many of its citizens have completed the registration to make them eligible for the state’s vaccination exercise.

The state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known through his verified Twitter account @ProfAkinAbayomi, on Thursday while giving the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination update for March 16.
