COVID-19: FG to prosecute those with fake vaccination cards

Daily Trust

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) says it is collaborating with the State Security Services (SSS), Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), and other law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute people who fraudulently acquire COVID-19 vaccination cards without getting vaccinated.

The Executive Director of the agency, Dr. Faisal Shuaib said this Tuesday in Abuja, during the weekly COVID-19 update by the agency.

He said, “With the increase in COVID-19 vaccination mandates globally, it has come to the notice of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) and the Federal Ministry of Health, that attempts are being made by unscrupulous persons to procure the COVID-19 vaccination cards, without receiving the COVID-19 vaccines.

“NPHCDA and the Presidential Steering Committee strongly condemns these fraudulent attempts and is urging those attempting such acts to desist henceforth.

“The ongoing COVID-19 vaccination and the vaccination cards are totally free of charge at all designated COVID-19 vaccination sites across the 36 states of the Federation and the FCT. Possession of vaccination cards without receiving the vaccines is criminal and punishable by law.
