Countdown To World Immunization Week- April 24- 30

In the lead-up to World Immunization Week 2015 (24–30 April), the WHO is calling for renewed efforts on immunization to meet global vaccination targets.

From every indication, the Lagos state government is serious about immunization too. On Wednesday, the Lagos state Ministry of Health announced that it would start the 2nd Round of the 2015 National Immunisation Plus Days (NIPDs) on April 25 and end it on April 28th.

There will be 3 teams involved in the exercise: a fixed team stationed in areas for people to visit at their convenience; a transit team that will move from bus-stop to bus-stop; and the house-to-house team.

Children between the ages of 0-5 are the main targets and the exercise is planned to cover all the Local governments in Lagos.

Please ensure your children get immunized and encourage others to do the same.
