No Nigerian will be mandated to take the COVID-19 vaccines, says Mamora
Olorunnimbe Mamora, the Minister of State for Health has disclosed that the COVID19 vaccination will not be mandatory in Nigeria.
This disclosure was made by Mamora during an interview with Arise TV when asked if the vaccines will be mandatory in Nigeria.
The State Minister for Health, Mamora said;
“Nothing will be made mandatory. It’s optional. The choice is yours. Nobody will be forced to take any vaccine”
When asked if it might become mandatory in the future, Mamora said, “If that happens, it would not be a decision of Nigeria.”
He said that just as people can’t travel to some countries without having the Yellow Card certificate, countries might have to start demanding a COVID-19 vaccination certificate before allowing outsiders in.
Recall that Nigeria received 3.92 million doses of the COVID19 AstraZeneta vaccines on Tuesday, March 2.
