Ondo gives workers two-week ultimatum to get vaccinated

The Ondo State Government has given public servants two weeks to take COVID-19 vaccine.

In a circular, the Permanent Secretary, Service Matters, Mr O. J. Afolabi, said henceforth, public servants must show a vaccination card in order to access some facilities.

Afolabi said the move is part of the state government’s effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

The circular read, “Following the outbreak of Delta Variant, a subsequent third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become imperative for government to direct all categories of public servants to take Covid-19 vaccination within two weeks from the date of this circular.”

However, the state government charged workers on strict adherence and compliance to COVID-19 protocols.

There is currently a mixed-reaction to vaccination among Nigerians.

In Edo State, the move to make vaccine compulsory triggered a backlash but Governor Godwin Obaseki has maintained his stance that it is compulsory.

The Federal Government is currently contemplating making COVID vaccine compulsory.

Nigeria, like other countries across the world, is experiencing the third wave of the virus.
