The Nigerian Government says there’s no going back on the vaccination deadline for Civil servants across the Federation.

The Executive Director, National Primary Health-care Development Agency, NPHCDA, Dr Shu’aib Faisal stated this at the National Media briefing in Abuja, Nigeria.

He said that starting from December 1, 2021, all Federal Civil servants would be required to show evidence of being vaccinated against COVID-19, or a negative PCR result done within 72 hours before being allowed into their offices.

According to Dr Shu’aib, NPHCDA in collaboration with the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons will launch a mass vaccination in Refugee and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps across the country.
