Lagos State said it has run out of stock for Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, being used at various vaccination centres.

Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi, announced the scarcity in a statement titled ‘Non-availability of #COVID19 Moderna Vaccine in Lagos State – Appeal for Restraint by Lagos State Ministry of Health’.

Lagos State Ministry of Health (LSMOH) and Lagos State Primary Healthcare Board (LSPHCB) sincerely appeal for understanding over the non-availability of Mordena Vaccine in all vaccination centres in Lagos at the moment.

It should be noted that the supply of Vaccines to all states of the Federation is done exclusively by National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA). Like other states of the federation, Lagos State relies on NPHCDA for supply of all COVID-19 Vaccines

At the moment, Lagos State is yet to be supplied with another batch of Moderna Vaccine since the last stock was exhausted. The situation is however temporary.
