Kaduna State government has issued an ultimatum to its workers to get their COVID-19 vaccine jabs or risk being disallowed from
entering government offices.
The state government made this announcement on Tuesday in a statement through the Spokesperson to the governor, Muyiwa Adekeye. Every civil servant in the state has been given until the 31st of October to get vaccinated after which they will not be allowed to enter their offices without a proof of vaccination.
The statement by Adekeye read that; “The Kaduna State Government will from 31st October 2021 require compliance with Covid-19 protocols, especially facemasks and vaccination, for access to its offices,”
“The Ministry of Health has since commenced the vaccination of all civil servants, and this is expected to be completed by 31st October 2021. All civil servants are required to be vaccinated by that date.
“Visitors to government offices will need to present their vaccination cards. Given the limited supply of vaccines that are currently available, visitors that have not yet been vaccinated will, in the interim, be permitted entry upon presentation of evidence of registration with the state Ministry of Health for the purpose of vaccination, while wearing their facemasks.”
The state government revealed that the decision is coming on the back of a review of the COVID-19 situation in the state.
Edo State had also enforced a no vaccine, no entry policy on its civil servants but the decision has come under legal scrutiny.
