COVID-19 vaccination commences for youth corpers

In line with the commitment of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to the welfare of Corps Members, the FCT and State Secretariats of the Scheme, in collaboration with the National Primary Health Care Department Agency have commenced the vaccination of Corps Members against Coronavirus.

A statement from the NYSC said “The exercise which is currently ongoing across the country is a fallout of the request made by the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim to the health agency in respect of having Corps Members vaccinated against the dreaded virus, which unfortunately remains a formidable enemy and great threat to the existence of humanity.

“The Director-General is full of appreciation to the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and National Primary Health Care Department Agency for always working assiduously to safeguard the lives of Corps Members and camp officials.”

He called on Corps Members and NYSC staff members to avail themselves of the rare opportunity offered by this exercise by making themselves available to be vaccinated.
