The federal government, on Tuesday, hinted that there could be action against some individuals who refuse to take COVID-19 vaccine and are endangering the lives of others.
Faisal Shuaib, Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHDA), disclosed at a press briefing in Abuja.
Shuaib said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is making frantic efforts in making the vaccines more accessible to all Nigerians.
“If some individuals refuse to take the vaccine, hence endangering those who have or those who could not due to medical exemptions, then we have to apply the basic rule of law which stipulates that your human right stops where mine begins,” he said.
“So, you have a right to refuse vaccines, but you do not have the right to endanger the health of others.”
The federal government commenced the second phase of COVID-19 vaccination on August 16, 2021, after receiving four million doses of Moderna vaccines donated by the United States government.
