COVID 19 Vaccine: Commander, 32 Artillery Brigade, others receive first jabs in Ondo.
Brig.-Gen. Raymond Utsaha, Commander, 32 Artillery Brigade, Nigerian Army, Owena Cantonment, has received a dose of Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccine at the Brigade Headquarters, Akure.
Utsaha, alongside other army officers, received the dose following the launch of the first phase of the vaccination for health workers and frontline public servants in the state.
While receiving the vaccine, the commander charged officers, men, and the entire barrack community to avail themselves the opportunity and follow the necessary guidelines “in order to defeat the virus which had infected over 190 million people globally since December 2019”.
The commander, therefore, appreciated the Ondo State Government for deeming the barrack community worthy to have the vaccine in Owena Cantonment.
In his remark, Dr Adeyemi Osowe, representative of the Ondo State Primary Health care Development, disclosed that the Astrazeneca vaccine arrived in Nigeria some weeks ago, and it would be administered in two doses.
