Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has stated that any individual in Lagos who wish to get COVID-19 vaccines at approved private facilities would pay N6,000 as administrative charge.
The governor spoke on Wednesday at the mass vaccination campaign launched by the state government.
Sanwo-Olu re-emphasised that the vaccines being administered are safe and remain free of charge in public health facilities.
He said: “We have set up COVID-19 vaccination in all our 205 public primary health centres, 14 of the state’s second and tertiary hospitals, and we are hoping that this partnership can be implemented in over 400 private health centres across seven underserved Local Government Areas in the state.
“Let me re-emphasise that we are not compelling anyone to get vaccinated. But, we want everyone to take it as personal responsibility, which is highly important. What we seek to achieve by this campaign is to ensure there is access to the vaccines and availability. Then, give people an opportunity to get vaccinated at centres close to them. This will give nobody a reason not to get the vaccines.”
