COVID-19: Oyo Would Get Its Allotment of AstraZeneca Vaccine Before Friday – CPS

Mr Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, confirmed that Oyo state has not gotten its allotment of the Covid-19 vaccines.

He said although the state has been expecting the delivery of the vaccines, certain development caused the delay.

According to him, the vaccines would be delivered to the state between now and Friday.

In his statement, 102,300 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines have been allocated to the state for the first distribution phase.

Earlier, the state government said it is fully ready and adequately prepared to receive its share of the Covid-19 vaccines to be allocated to the state.

The state said provisions for storage and preservation were parts of the factors earlier considered before the state made public its intentions to procure additional vaccines for the state at the peak of the outbreak of the virus.

The state commissioner for health, Dr Bashir Bello made the disclosures while responding to enquires.

According to Bello, the state has existing cooling facilities and storage which were used for the immunization processes earlier while also empowering some local government areas to be adequately prepared for the arrival of the vaccines.

Mr Taiwo Adisa, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said that there would be four phases of the delivery and the state executed all the necessary procedures to receive and preserve the vaccines.
