This, the Governor said, is a far cry from what was projected in achieving herd immunity.Sanwo-Olu disclosed that 405,000 residents had received first doses of AstraZeneca, while 289,000 persons returned for their second doses. The State, he said, administered 230,000 first shots of Moderna to raise the vaccinated population to about 1.2 per cent within five months.
He said: “Our vaccination rate is far below the minimum target of 60 per cent recommended by the World Health Organisation (W.H.O) per city population. At the current rate, it would take about three years to achieve our herd immunity target. We cannot continue at this speed if we seriously want to beat this virus.
“To safely achieve herd immunity against COVID-19, a substantial proportion of our population would need to be vaccinated to lower the overall amount of virus able to spread in the whole population. One of the objectives of attaining herd immunity is to prevent mutations from emerging leading to more aggressive strains. It is important that Lagos achieves herd immunity at the same time with all countries together.” headtopics.comRead more: The Punch Newspapers »

Six states oppose FG’s compulsory COVID-19 vaccination planAmid Federal Government’s concern over many Nigerians’ reluctance to take the Covid-19 vaccine and its plan to impose sanctions on those who refuse the vaccine when it is made available to all. The states, including Enugu, Taraba, Cross River, Ogun, Bauchi and Abia, said they would keep appealing to their residents to take the vaccine instead of adopting strict measures to compel them. When countries dey talk, Naija sef dey talk. A country that doesn’t know how many citizens it has wants to enforce mandatory vaccinations. Abeg let’s hear word! Kudos to the State Governments for their current stance on mandatory Covid-19 vaccination plan for Nigerians by the careless FG. Unlike the super useless State Governor that's forcing public workers and other people to take the jab by fire, by thunder. Medical terrorism is evil.
