COVID-19: FG Considers Sanction For Unvaccinated People

The Federal Government has said it is considering placing sanction on Nigerians who refuse to take COVID-19 vaccine.

This was stated by the Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, while speaking at a press conference in Abuja.

According to him, such people are endangering the lives of others.

Edo and Ondo states have already placed restrictions on such people which prevents them from having access to certain places.

He said, “he Presidential Steering Committee and the Federal Ministry of Health is exploring ways of making vaccines more available to all Nigerians including federal civil servants and corporate entities.

“Once these vaccines are made equitably available to all Nigerians, then we would need to have a frank discussion about justice, fairness and liberty that exist around vaccine hesistancy.

“If some individuals refuse to take the vaccine, hence endangering those who have or those who could not due to medical exemptions, then we have to apply the basic rule of law which stipulates that your human right stops where mine begins.

“So, you have a right to refuse vaccines, but you do not have the right to endanger the health of others.”
