The Oyo State Government on Wednesday joined other states across Nigeria to begin the COVID-19 vaccination exercise.

The state flagged off the exercise in Ibadan with the first consignment of 127,740 doses it received from the Federal Government.

Gov. Seyi Makinde was inoculated with the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine at exactly 12.20 pm.

During the flag-off, Makinde said the state had decided on a sterility test of the vaccine as a precautionary measure to ascertain its safety and efficacy.

“I have a very low tolerance for physical pain, but when duty calls, you have to do what you have to do.

“I am getting vaccinated today as a show of leadership and to let the people know that they have to be protected.

“I ordered sterility tests because when I asked questions about the origin of the vaccine, I was informed that the batch that came to the country came from India.

“It is not that I don’t like India or I don’t believe in their products, but I was worried about the storage and I wanted to validate that the vaccines that we will give to the people of Oyo State have been correctly handled.
