Commissioner for health and chairman of COVID19 Taskforce Team, Dr. Betta Edu has said that there is no need in he state to force people to take vaccination against the Delta variant of he COVID19.
She said that they were lucky that the people are on their own responding to calls to take the jab.
She said so far a good number of the people including officials of government have submitted to the inoculation.
She also said that as they are mounting sensitization and encouraging people to adhere to the COVID19 protocols, the people were hearkening gradually.
“We really don’t have need to impose order for all to submit to the vaccination. This is because we are having good responses by he people who call at vaccination centres at their paces”, she said.
A clergyman, Timothy Akpan with a large congregation in Calabar South LGA, said the government should not impose it on the people.
“We have spiritual immunity against the pandemic. Our God has inoculated us spiritually. They can’t force us to take in storage chemicals that may harm”, he said.
