Measles: Osun Commissioner Urges Parents To Make Children Available For Immunisation

Governor State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, applying drug on a child, during the flag off of the integrated measles campaign, held at the freedom park, Osogbo, State of Osun on Friday 01-11-2013
The Commissioner for Health in Osun, Dr Temitope Ilori, on Saturday, urged parents and caregivers to make their children available for immunisation against measles and other child killer diseases.
Ilori made the call in an interview. She said “people should avoid the antics and sentiments that vaccines kill; they should join in the crusade against the killer diseases.
“The Integrated Measles Campaign embarked upon by the Osun State Government is to vaccinate children between the ages of nine and 59 months against measles. The Oral Polio Vaccine and other antigens will also be available during the integrated campaign and they are purposefully for children under the age of five years. I, therefore, want to urge traditional rulers, religious leaders and community leaders to encourage their wives to bring their children for the immunisation at various designated centres”. She urged.
The commissioner charged immunisation officers in the 30 local government areas of the state to put in their best and ensure the success of the programme. She said the state had taken delivery of 856,200 doses of the measles vaccine and 1,019,480 doses of polio vaccine.
The state would, therefore, vaccinate no fewer than 725,574 children against measles, while 853,616 children would be administered the polio vaccine.
Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun had on Friday in Osogbo launched the campaign against measles. The governor said at the launch that the state government was committed to protect the lives of children.
He urged women to also do the same for their children by making them available for the vaccination at the designated centres.
