Anambra State Commissioner for Health, Dr Vincent Okpala says a total of 22,861 persons have received the COVID-19 vaccine in the state.
The state had last month received 78,810 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines from the federal government.
The state governor, Willie Obiano had while unveiling the vaccines in the state, said half of the vaccines would be administered to residents in the first round, while the other half will be kept for the second dose, to ensure that those who receive the first dose will also get the second.
With 22,861 vaccines already administered out of the expected 35,945 vaccines, Anambra can be said to have administered 65 per cent already.
Okpala said, “As of April 4th, the total number of persons vaccinated is 22,861. Our campaign continues. With decreasing vaccine hesitancy I see a situation where demand will outstrip supply.”
