The Federal Government says unvaccinated civil servants will from December 1 be barred from entering government offices.
It however mandated coronavirus vaccination for civil servants.
The Chairman of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, announced the new directive at a briefing on Wednesday.
According to him, federal government employees will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result.
He added that this was to gain access to government offices in all locations within Nigeria and missions. He added that an appropriate service-wide advisory/circular would be issued to guide the process.
Mustapha said, “The PSC wishes to put Nigerians on notice that two major religious festivities (Salah and Christmas) are approaching and we shall be experiencing increased passenger traffic in and out of the country.
“Similarly, events of large gatherings are likely to hold. While the PSC prepares to escalate surveillance and other control activities, we urge the States and all Nigerians to also increase their vigilance and take measure to moderate activities.”
