This strategy dubbed ‘Count Me In! 4 million Lagosians Vaccinated Against COVID-19’ is aimed at targeting the full vaccination of four million Lagos residents before the end of December 2021; and was launched by the Governor of Lagos State,  Babajide Sanwo-Olu alongside the Honorable Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi and the Executive Director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Faisal Shuaib, in a side event of the 7th African Conference on One Health and Biosecurity which focused on Vaccine strategies. Once achieved, this will bring the State closer to the Mr. Governors mandate to vaccinate 30% of the Lagos population within one year which started in August of 2021.
