Five persons have been arrested in Bauchi state for selling and buying COVID-19 green cards. The cards are given to persons after receiving the COVID19 jabs.
Disclosing this to newsmen, the Executive Chairman of Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency, BASPHCDA, Dr. Rilwanu Mohammed, decried the fraudulent activities of medical personnel in the state who are hampering the government’s efforts to ensure vaccination of residents of the state against COVID19.
Many people who shunned the jab when flagged off by the governor, his deputy and House of Assembly speaker, later contracted the virus. Some people, who got vaccinated and felt the mild side effects of the vaccine, were giving others negative narratives. Some were placing metal and other objects on the spot of the jab to get people to reject it.
