The programme highlighted the critical role mothers and caregivers play as the primary guardians in safeguarding children from preventable and other childhood diseases through immunisation.

Mothers were advised to therefore ensure full adherence to their children’s immunisation schedule.

Recall that according to the World Health Organisation, WHO, disclosed that Africa needs to vaccinate about 33 million children between 2023 and 2025 to put the continent back on track to achieve the 2030 global immunisation target to reduce morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases.
