National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said that the 2021 Batch ‘C’ Stream II service year will begin on Wednesday, November 24 with corps members required to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, said yesterday that in conformity with the directive of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, corps members would, from Dec. 1, show evidence of vaccination.
“Federal civil servants including corps members will be required to show evidence of COVID-19 vaccination before they are allowed access into offices and orientation camps from Dec. 1,” Adeyemi said in a statement.
“Please note that presentation of forged COVID-19 vaccination certificate is a criminal offence.”
According to the NYSC spokesperson, Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) mobilized for the service year must present themselves for the COVID-19 test at the camp before registration.
