Ondo declares no vaccination, no work from November

 Ondo declares no vaccination, no work from November


Ondo State Government on Wednesday vowed to enforce the “no vaccination, no access to its offices” rule.

Mr Segun Odusanya, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, disclosed at a meeting with the staff of the Ministry in Akure.

He said the presentation of the COVID-19 vaccination card has become a compulsory requirement for civil servants as workers go to their workplaces as from Nov. 1.

“The directive would be enforced as from Nov.1 with compliance to all the COVID-19 protocols by the civil servants in the state.

Odusanya said that the meeting was the fallout of an earlier meeting with the Head of Service, who directed that any civil servant not vaccinated by Nov. 1 would not be allowed into any state government office.

According to him, enforcement is a means of protecting the staff because the pandemic, which is not yet over, has a more deadly variant, hence the need to be vaccinated and to obey the protocols.

In addition, he urged them to prioritise routine checks of blood pressure, blood sugar, and others, as certain diseases could be prevented by being careful.

Thereafter, Odusanya called for punctuality and seriousness at work, appealed for prudence with spending due to the prevailing economic situation in the country.
