By Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna


Parents and caregivers have been charged to make their children, under 5 years of age, available for vaccination as Kaduna State commences another round of polio immunization campaign.

The exercise which commenced from 8th – 11th October, 2022, would be conducted by vaccinators on House-to-House visitation and immunization on the streets, worship centres, markets, motor parks among others.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the State Coordinator, Journalists Initiative on Immunization Against Polio (JAP) Lawal A. Dogara.

JAP advised that immunization would protect children as such parents should try and ensure they allowed the vaccinators to attend to their wards.

JAP explained that all adequate arrangements have been made for the smooth conduct of the exercise by the State Government, Development partners and other stakeholders.

JAP commended the Traditional Rulers and Religion Leaders for their continued efforts for the success of all campaigns implemented in the state.

The body also appealed to eligible persons in the state to visit health facilities for Covid-19 Vaccination.

It commended the World Health Organization (WHO) for partnering with JAP with a view to educating the parents and the general public on the importance of immunization and other public health interventions.

JAP then appealed to the ad-hoc staff engaged for the conduct of Polio immunization to ensure all eligible children are reached for the progress of the exercise.
