The Lagos State government has said that only persons that have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be attended to during the continuation of the phase 1 exercise for administration of the second dose.

The State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, who disclosed this in a statement on the tweeter handle of the state ministry of health, said persons yet to receive the first dose should stay home for the time being.
