In an interactive session with some residents of Kaduna, those in support say such action will induce more people to take serious the need to get vaccinated and not dwell on hear says.
Residents who are against this policy are of the opinion that there are more pressing issues such as the high standard of living, inflation, insecurity among others and not covid-19 vaccination as it should be a choice and not mandatory.
Speaking with a health personnel the advice was for residents to register at the nearest primary health centers for vaccination as it is for their own wellbeing and as a government policy it should be obeyed by all.
