Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Wednesday said that the Federal Government had allocated 1,800 vaccines to the state, out of about 100,000 vaccines procured for the country.

Makinde made the disclosure during a press conference held at the Government House, Agodi in Ibadan, disclosing that the state recorded 696 COVID-19 positive cases out of 13,000 tests from December 2020 to date.

He, however, said that the number of vaccines allocated to the state was grossly inadequate based on the population of between seven and 12 million people.
