Bauchi agency deplores low turnout for immunisation

| February 27, 2013 More

BAUCHI State Chairman of the Primary Health Care Development Agency (PHCDA), Dr. Nisser Umar, has expressed worries over the low turnout for immunisation recorded in the state.

Umar stated this Tuesday at a one-day workshop organised by PHCDA for traditional and religious leaders in Bauchi Emirate Council.

The chairman described the poor turnout to the immunisation exercise as unfortunate, saying that a lot of efforts were being made by government to ensure that all children got immunised against polio.

He said: “Vaccines and other logistics provided by the government are being wasted, as our people do not take their children for immunisation. As our leaders, there is need for information flow so that people will know the importance of immunisation and other health services”.
