Covid-19: FG To Take Actions Against Nigerians Who Refuse Vaccine

It has been reported that the Federal Government is planning to take necessary actions against people who refuse to take the jab of the Covid-19 vaccines.

This was reportedly confirmed by the Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Faisal Shuaib at a press briefing on Tuesday, August 31.

He stated that the Federal Government may “apply the basic rule of law” against such people because they will be endangering the lives of others.

According to him, “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.”

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

“The Presidential Steering Committee and the Federal Ministry of Health are exploring ways of making vaccines more available to all Nigerians including federal civil servants and corporate entities.”

He disclosed that “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 hesitancy.”
