The Federal Government of Nigeria through the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), has announced that there will be a mandatory office-to-office Covid-19 Vaccinations for all public servants in various government offices across the nation.
This was confirmed on Monday by Faisal Shuaib, who is the Executive Director of NPHCDA , during a Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) meeting on COVID-19 in Abuja, in a statement which reads;
“We have also commenced office-to-office vaccination in Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs). What this simply means is that government employees who are yet to be vaccinated will find a vaccination site around their offices to register and get vaccinated,”
“The COVID-19 vaccinations, are free and will be made accessible at locations nearby, we urge Nigerians, residents and everybody who has not yet received a vaccine to take advantage of the mass vaccination programme”.
“The office -to-office vaccination which is scheduled to commence on December 1, 2021, will help in preventing the excuse of having to leave their place of employment to a distant vaccination site”.
All federal government workers will be obliged to provide evidence of COVID-19 vaccination or submit a negative PCR result to be able to access their workplaces, according to Boss Mustapha, head of the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19.
“With effect from 1st December 2021, Federal Government employees shall be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result done within 72 hours, to gain access to their offices, in all locations within Nigeria and our Missions,”
