No Fewer than 500,000 residents have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in Cross River State.
Dr Janet Ekpenyong, the Director General of the Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, disclosed this in an interview on Thursday.
She said that the figure reflected the vaccination stage from March, 2021, to October, 2022.
She also added that the target was to ensure that at least 1.5 million people were vaccinated by the end of December.
Ekpenyong, however, said that if the target was not met due to low turnout of residents, the agency would meet the target by the first quarter of 2023.
