Anambra State Commissioner for Heath Dr. Vincent Okpala has urged Ndi Anambra to take advantage of the ongoing first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccination to protect themselves.

The Commissioner who made the call in Awka noted that Anambra State Government secured another vaccine from the Federal Government for non-health workers after the first vaccine was administered on frontline health workers.

Dr. Okpala explained that vaccines are the easiest means of preventing any infectious disease, especially the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commissioner Okpala stated that since the vaccines were discovered, some countries have gradually re-opened their airports and territorial borders.

The Commissioner assured that the State government will not relent in its efforts at ensuring that people do the needful.

According to him, COVID-19 jabs can be received at the Government House and State Secretariat Clinic, Red Cross Amawbia and Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital Amaku Awka as well as the Headquarters of the twenty-one Local Government Areas.
