The Guaranty Trust Bank has directed its staff to take the COVID-19 vaccine before the end of the month or face a 50 percent pay cut.

The bank reminded employees that the first dose of Moderna vaccine and the second dose of AstraZeneca vaccine for those who had already received the first dose are currently available across the country.
The memo read: All staff have been mandated to ensure they receive their vaccines in their various locations on/before the 30th of September 2021.
