Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), Dr. Faisal Shuaib, has debunked the rumour that the Federal Government issued a circular mandating civil servants to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Faisal Shuaib during the national press briefing on COVID-19 on Monday clarified the stand of the government. He said the government has no intention to force anyone to take the jab.


Faisal explained that there are chances that the government may head towards putting certain policies in place for Nigerians to be responsible for their health status.

“You may be required to either show your proof of vaccination or PCR COVID-19 test result.”
