This is an unverified public service announcement & is reproduced as received since I felt it’s #TooImportantNotToKnow ..

The #LagosStateGovernment in collaboration with all Partner agencies (NPHCDA, WHO, UNICEF, CHAI, Save the Children, JICA, Rotary etc.) will be conducting-
A Statewide #PolioOutbreak Response Campaign for children aged 0 months to 59 months old in the bid to eradicate Poliovirus from the Country...

#Nigeria is unfortunately one of the three countries in the world and only country in Africa with endemic polio.
In recent times, circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus has been isolated in a few LGAs in Lagos and this has necessitated an outbreak response.

Three rounds of the outbreak response campaign will be conducted.
The first round was conducted in Lagos Mainland and Mushin LGAs while the other 2 rounds will be conducted Statewide.

Irrespective of your child or wards vaccination status, kindly ensure they are immunised. House to house teams will also be coming to your houses ...
whilespecial teams will be in markets, schools, religious houses, parks etc.The vaccine is also available in all govt owned primary, secondary & tertiary health facilities and selected private hospitals.

There is no cure for polio.The virus can only b prevented by Immunisation.
In Lagos State, the 2 statewide rounds of the campaign will be conducted as follows:

Sat 18th to Tues 21st May 2019
Sat 15th to Tues 18th June 2019

Please oblige house to house teams that visit you and ensure your child is vaccinated in both rounds.
The vaccine is entirely free and safe. It will protect your child from poliomyelitis which may lead to paralysis, disability, bone deformities or death.

Kindly help #Retweet and disseminate this information to more people.

Thank you and May #GodBlessYou
