Prof. Akin Abayomi, State Commissioner for Health, in a statement on Sunday, said the administration of the second dose of the vaccine which began on May 28 would end on July 9.
He said the programme was in continuation of the Phase 1 COVID-19 vaccination that started on March 12.
Abayomi said 317,916 people were vaccinated with the first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
“This means that 1.32 per cent of the state’s population has received the first dose,” he said.
According to him, for anyone to be fully vaccinated, two doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine are required, with an interval of six to 12 weeks.
He said the second dose would be administered on working days across the 88 approved health facilities in the state.
“I, therefore, implore citizens who have received their first dose to proceed to the health facilities where they got their first dose on their scheduled appointment dates, which are clearly stated on the vaccination card that was issued.
“They are also advised to avoid overcrowding and overwhelming the health workers by staggering their arrival at the vaccination site from between 8 a.m to 1 p.m.
“I will like to reiterate that every vaccinated person should visit the health facility where they got their first dose with their vaccination cards, so that the process is seamless, and their data accurately captured.
