Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State on Sunday showed leadership by receiving the second dose of the Oxford AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, at the Government House, Enugu, alongside his deputy, Hon. Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo.
The event which took place at the Government House Clinic is coming against the backdrop of reduced incidence of the pandemic in the state.
This current state of affairs may have created a laissez faire attitude to the pandemic in the state making people to throw caution to the winds but then national statistics from the NCDC insist the disease is still very much around even as many people remain averse to vaccinations. The Ugwuanyi example may convince and ginger other persons to go for the vaccines.
The event was coordinated by the Executive Secretary, Enugu State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr. George Ugwu, state representative of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr. Ogechi Akalaonu, Prof. Neri Agapito Geraldo Picardo, and some trained health personnel, among others.
