Visitors to government offices to present Covid 19 vaccination cards – Kaduna govt

The Kaduna state government has said that in order to ensure strict compliance of COVID 19 protocols, all visitors to government offices will need to present their vaccination cards.

The Daily Vendor Newspaper correspondent in Kaduna reports that the state governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye said this in a statement he made available to newsmen in Kaduna. 

According to the statement, given the limited supply of vaccines that are currently available, visitors that have not yet been vaccinated will in the interim be permitted entry upon presentation of evidence of registration with the state Ministry of Health for the purpose of vaccination.

The statement said the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Amina Mohammed-Baloni, has announced that residents are encouraged to register at the nearest primary health centre for COVID 19 vaccinations so that the relevant authorities can easily contact them as more vaccines become available.

The statement further explained that the state government is constantly monitoring COVID 19 infections in the state and reviewing the pattern of spread.

“Based on these reviews, the State COVID 19 Taskforce has advised the government that the risk of mass infection remains, stressing that it necessitates that careful attention must be paid to continued enforcement of preventive measures and encouraging residents of the state to practice personal responsibility more consistently,” the statement noted.

This, the statement explained is in line with the FORWARD campaign launched last year to help citizens adopt preventive measures as the state reopened after months of lockdown, adding that the state Ministry of Health has since commenced the vaccination of all civil servants, saying that it is expected to be completed by October 31, 2021.

The statement then called on the residents of the state to comply with the simple tests outlined in the FORWARD campaign for the realization of the government’s objectives of ensuring a free COVID 19 state.
