State Governor Insists Astrazeneca Is Safe As Even More Countries Suspend Use Of The Vaccine

The Osun State Government has reiterated that the ongoing vaccination against COVID-19 is in the best interest of people’s healthy living.

This is even as the government called on the people of the state to take responsibility in guarding against community transmission of COVID-19.

This was revealed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Civic Engagement, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye during COVID-19 sensitisation in Ilesa.

In his reassurance to the citizens that the vaccine is not harmful to them but a necessity that everyone must embrace for the sake of their general wellbeing, the Special Adviser revealed that the government has done its part by providing the necessary vaccination for guarding against the pandemic.

He reminded the citizens that it now behooved on them to take the vaccination very seriously so as to maintain the healthy living which Osun is known for.

Oyintiloye noted that the exemplary leadership of Governor Oyetola by ensuring that top government functionaries were the first to get vaccinated was indeed a testament to the assurance given to the people

“You should not only use your nose masks, hand sanitisers and maintain social distance but also ensure to guard against community transmission by taking the campaign to your various communities.

“The ongoing vaccination should not give you the reason to relax in sustaining the guidelines”, he added.

247NNU recalls that the State government had on Tuesday evening formally taken the delivery of 64,240 doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine, while the governor, top government officials and some front line health workers had been vaccinated.
