With increasing talks about the potential of the virus to keep mutating, Nigerians may be required to up their dosage of the vaccine.

“We know that the vaccine is certainly protecting the population from severe disease and death. So the question is, as the virus is changing, it may require that we need to give you more than two doses,” the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, said at a briefing on Tuesday.
