The SHEFA Health Manager has called on all frontline workers who are planning to get their jabs in the coming days to respect the process and follow the queue.

The call came after the SHEFA Health authorities receive reports of government employees trying to pressurize officials involved in the vaccination process in order to receive their vaccine.

Manager Obed Manwo said frontline officers were given enough time to go and receive their vaccine. Each government ministry was allotted their schedules for their vaccinations.

“If they want to get their vaccines, they must follow the queue like any ordinary citizen,” Manwo reiterated.

He added that government employees must not disturb the routine of the vaccination mobile team.

SHEFA Vaccination team will only allow urgent calls for vaccination if they receive a formal request with valid reasons for any Director General, directors or Members of Parliament.

This week the Public Service Commission issued an instruction to all public servants to get vaccinated or stay off from work.

Further to that, public servants are given two weeks to get vaccinated.
