I have a php script that runs through this tag. Is there a way to ensure
that lynx handle refresh?

It does (unless you've found a bug).  Quoting from the user guide:

   Lynx recognizes and processes Refresh directives in META elements, but
   puts  up  a  labeled  link,  typically in the upper left corner of the
   display,  indicating  the number of seconds intended before a refresh,
   and   the   URL  for  the  refresh,  instead  of  making  the  request
   automatically  after  the  indicated  number  of  seconds. This allows
   people  using  a  braille  interface any amount of time to examine the
   current  document  before  activating  the  link  for the next URL. In
