Civil Servants To Receive COVID-19 Vaccine Before November, Says El-Rufai
Workers who have not been vaccinated will be refused entry to government offices.

COVID-19 vaccination is needed for all public workers in Kaduna State by October 31, 2021.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai said in a statement on Tuesday, October 19, that unvaccinated personnel will be refused entry to government buildings.
Vaccination cards or proof of registration for vaccination with the state Ministry of Health would be required for visitors to government offices.
According to a statement signed by the governor’s spokesman, Muyiwa Adekeye, the announcement was made in response to recommendations by the state’s COVID-19 Task Force.
“Careful attention must be paid to continued enforcement of preventive measures and encouraging residents of Kaduna State to practice personal responsibility more consistently,” the statement read.
Until COVID-19 vaccinations are widely accessible, the authorities advised citizens to continue to use non-pharmaceutical safety measures against the virus.
Last month, Edo State implemented a similar vaccine requirement for government workers, but the policy was met with opposition owing to supply difficulties and vaccine reluctance.
Since the campaign began in March, more than 5 million Nigerians have gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.
