JOHESU, NMA faults FG decision to sanction COVID-19 defaulters

The Federal Government, yesterday , hinted that it might sanction anybody who refused to take COVID-19 vaccines after they had been made available to all Nigerians.

The Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, gave the hint of possible sanctions at a press briefing in Abuja.

The Nigerian Medical Association and health workers under the aegis of the Joint Health Sector Union faulted the move.

While the NMA said the people had the right to reject vaccines the same way they could reject medical treatment, JOHESU stated that the move to make vaccination compulsory was senseless.
