The President of Maldives on Tuesday, instructed all government employees, including government agencies and subsidiaries, to inoculate against Covid-19 by completing both vaccine doses, stating that immunisation is the best safeguard against the virus for the whole community. The instructions were publicised as the 22nd directive issued by the President’s Office this year.

The directive refers to the circular released by the Health Protection Agency (HPA) on 2 August 2021, urging all government employees to get vaccinated and immunised against Covid-19.

All government employees who had not received any doses of the vaccine should complete the first dose by 15 August 2021, and the second dose after the requisite duration. Employees who had been advised against vaccination, due to pre-existing medical conditions, by a medical doctor registered in the Maldives, are also urged to become immunised as their health allows.

President Solih further directed state administrators and senior management to ensure that all employees receive both doses of the vaccine against Covid-19.
