FG Commences Enforcement Of Mandatory Vaccination For Civil Servants


The Federal Government has commenced the enforcement of mandatory vaccination against COVID-19 at the Federal Secretariat.

As early as 7:00 am on Wednesday, security men manned the main entrance to the Federal Secretariat where they demanded either a vaccination card or evidence of negative PCR test before allowing the civil servants to enter the Secretariat.

Some of the unvaccinated civil servants however questioned the Federal Government’s decision saying COVID-19 vaccination should not be made compulsory but a matter of choice.

Others said they are willing to get vaccinated.

However, a vaccination stand has been set up under a canopy close to the secretariat for those interested to take their vaccine.

The Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 had earlier given a directive mandating all Federal Civil Servants to be vaccinated or present evidence of negative PCR test for COVID-19, effective from December 1, 2021.
