Speaking at the sidelines of the flag-off, Dr Nusirat Elelu, the Executive Secretary of the State Primary Health Care Development Agency, stated that over 50,000 people have already received the vaccines in the first phase of the immunisation.

Professor Akin Abayomi, the Commissioner for Health in the state, noted in a statement on Monday that all the strides gained in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic would be lost if concerted efforts are not made to protect the borders against the importation of new and mutant strains of the virus which may trigger the third wave of infections.

Ibenu gave the advice in Lokoja when officials of Kogi State Ministry of Health and Kogi Primary Health Care Development Agency paid him an advocacy visit preparatory to receiving COVID-19 vaccines in the state.
