The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) says antibody checks will be conducted to detect civil servants who procure COVID vaccination cards “fraudulently”.

NPHCDA executive director, Faisal Shauib made this known on Monday at the media briefing of the presidential steering committee (PSC) on COVID.

He said: “I would like to remind all federal government employees that starting from December 1st, 2021, they would be required to show evidence of being vaccinated against COVID-19, or a negative PCR result done within 72 hours before being allowed into their offices,”

“To further ease access to COVID-19 vaccines by government employees, we have also commenced office-to-office vaccination in federal ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs). What this simply means is that employees who are yet to be vaccinated will find a vaccination site around their offices to register and get vaccinated. This will help in preventing the excuse of having to leave their place of employment to a distant vaccination site

“We would like to also state that, from time to time, civil servants will be picked at random to check or assess their COVID-19 antibody titre to detect persons who may have fraudulently acquired the vaccination cards without vaccination.

“Anyone who has been found to have fraudulently obtained the vaccination card without vaccination would be handed over to the law enforcement authorities. The vaccines are free and are available at sites close to you.
