COVID 19 Vaccine Enforcement: FG Maintains January 17th Deadline

COVID 19 Vaccine Enforcement: FG Maintains January 17th Deadline

  • The federal government has warned that its vaccination deadline for workers remains in place
  • Last year, the Federal Government has mandated the COVID 19 vaccine for all civil servants and set a deadline for January 17th, 2022
  • This is coming after the “Operation Show Your COVID-19 Vaccination Card, ” program that allowed only vaccinated Nigerians to enter government buildings

The federal government has warned that its January 17 deadline for vaccination among workers still stands.

From the said day, workers who have not been jabbed with the COVID 19 vaccine will not be allowed to access government buildings.

This update comes as civil servants in FCT rush to get vaccinated against COVID 19 before the ruling is enforced, according to the News Agency of Nigeria’s report.

Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection, and Enforcement to the FCT Minister, Mr. Ikharo Attah urged staff to get vaccinated, while stating that he is pleased with vaccination so far.

“We are also elated because we are seeing large numbers of persons taking the jab; some are taking their second jab, while some taking booster jab. We are so happy about it. There is no going back, on Monday, Jan. 17, we are doing enforcement.”
