No Covid-19 vaccination, no entry- NMS to their staff and visitors

No Covid-19 vaccination, no entry- NMS to their staff and visitors

The National Medical Stores (NMS) has announced that all staff and visitors who have no proof of Covid-19 vaccination will not access their premises and cars.

This has been confirmed by the NMS principal public relations officer, Sheila Nduhukire saying the directive takes immediate effect for their staff, and effective next week on Monday, October 18th non vaccinated visitors will not be allowed into their premises.

Nduhukyire however noted that proof of a negative PCR test result taken not more than 72 hours will be the only other option for the staff and visitors.

According to Nduhukire, the move is in line with the Government of Uganda directive to ensure vaccination of all eligible Ugandans as a condition for full reopening of the economy.

 ”As a government agency mandated to buy, store and distribute medicines (including Covid-19 Vaccines), they are leading by example and ensuring that all our staff and visitors coming to our premises are fully vaccinated to comply with the President’s directive on full Covid-19 vaccination”. Nduhukire said

”We, therefore, expect all our staff and visitors to comply with these new measures to avoid any inconveniences” she added.

Last week health minister Jane Ruth Aceng announced that the government is considering attaching salaries of public servants to Covid-19 vaccination adding that those with no proof of vaccination should stay home and they won’t get salaries.

Aceng revealed that the implementation of this plan would start with the ministry of health and later other government institutions.

Aceng noted that the country is tired of lockdown and the sooner the population gets vaccinated the sooner the fully reopening of the economy.

According to the ministry of health records, the government of Uganda has received over 5.6 million covid-19 doses, of which over 2.3 million doses have been utilized countrywide.
