Covid19: Obaseki Sets To Be The First Be Vaccinated In Edo State

Earlier today, after inspecting the state’s medical store facilities in Benin City, I disclosed that I will take the lead as the first person in the state to be vaccinated against coronavirus (COVID-19) in order to boost the citizens’ confidence to be inoculated against the disease.

The preventive protocols will still be in place as it will take a while to vaccinate an expected 80 percent of the population.
