In a bid to curb the spread of the deadly Covid-19 disease, the Ondo State Government has made vaccination compulsory for all civil servants in the state.

This was made known in a circular signed by the Permanent Secretary, Service Matters, Mr O. J. Afolabi on behalf of the Head of Service, on Friday.

According to the circular, the state government gave public servants in the state two weeks to take the vaccine.

The circular stated that the vaccination card will henceforth be required from public Servants in order to access some facilities.

The circular read in part, “Following the outbreak of Delta Variant, a subsequent third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become imperative for government to direct all categories of public servants to take Covid-19 vaccination within two weeks from the date of this circular.”

It also charged workers on strict adherence and compliance to Covid-19 protocols.
