Nigeria to issue new yellow card


The Federal Executive Council, presided over by the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has approved a memorandum for the introduction of a new Yellow Card with advanced security features.

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, said the former card was prone to abuse through issuance by unauthorised persons to people not actually vaccinated.

Adewole said: “With this new card, you cannot fake the yellow card; using a card reader; we can also document your vaccination status to know whether or not you have been genuinely vaccinated.

“As soon as we start the roll out, we will tell the Nigerian community the date of commencement, what to do with the one they have and when it will be phased out.”
