“The Ministry of Health has made the staff clinic at Abere a point of test for all the civil servant in the secretariat and they are responding.
After we have given them a certain period of time, those who still remain unvaccinated may not be allowed to enter into the secretariat.
“We have given them a period of three weeks to have themselves vaccinated. In this regard, the Head of Service is actually the campaign for this, sensitizing all the ministries, department and agencies of the availability of test and eventual vaccination.
And after this given period, if anyone still remains recalcitrant; we will know which action to take,” he said.
