Underage candidates not required to produce vaccination card – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has said all candidates below the age of 18 years are not required to produce any vaccination card before being allowed access to its facilities.

JAMB explained that those who fall within that category are not covered by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) Vaccination Policy.

Recall that the Board had announced a policy of no vaccination card, no entry into any of its facilities nationwide.

JAMB, however, discovered that many underage candidates were making frantic efforts to get vaccinated with some even falsifying their age to be vaccinated just to access services at the Board’s facilities.

However, a statement by JAMB’s Head of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin said, “It is to be noted that the policy, as announced by the Board, is in tandem with the NCDC policy of no vaccination, no access to public places as well as ensuring that only persons eligible for vaccination are vaccinated and issued the card.

Meanwhile, in view of likely abuse by individuals, the Board would also require evidence of being underage to allow any underage individual access to its facilities.

This directive is to protect the public as well as the staff of the Board from the ravaging virus and would want all and sundry to play their own part in this battle of ensuring that we have a healthy and productive population.”
