Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has resolved that no staff and visitors would be allowed entry into its offices nationwide without evidence of full COVID-19 vaccination.

The board in its weekly bulletin released on Monday stated that its decision was taken in line with the  protocols rolled out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC),

The Board added that it is  adopting the protocol in the light of its heightened preparations for the commencement of the 2022 UTME/DE Registration exercise.

“In line with this entry protocol, staff and visitors or clients are to present acceptable evidence which is: COVID-19 Vaccination Card, any identification card connecting the holder to the vaccination card, preferably the National Identity Card; Driver’s License or International Passport. This stipulation is to ensure, among others, that staff or visitors do not present vaccination cards that belong to other individuals.

“From available statistics from relevant agencies, the virus is spreading like wildfire, hence the clarion call for all to be vigilant, observe all protocols, and for institutions, be it public or private, to adopt relevant protocols to nip the spread of the virus in the bud.

“We implore all not to be lulled into a false sense of security as pertains to the COVID-19 pandemic as the increasingly dangerous dimension the virus is assuming should be a source of concern to all especially with the emergence of a more-virulent Omicron variant.
