Disease Control Bill: Some people are working on voodoo theory — Rep Igbakpa: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Could one of the grey areas be the compulsory or mandatory vaccination of every person?Section 47 of the bill is what you are talking about and there is nothing like compulsory there. The word there is “may.” Compulsory applies to people coming into the country from areas where there are infectious diseases. Today, if you want to go to South Africa, if you don’t have the yellow fever vaccine certificate, they will not allow you into the country.You can even go with a certificate from Nigeria and if they see that it is not what they expected, they will give you the vaccine and you pay for it. You might choose not to go to South Africa if you don’t want to get the compulsory vaccination. If we have had this law in place when this thing started in China, any flight coming from China would have been subjected to such a vaccine.
