Notice: Do Not Be Scammed, Meningitis Vaccines are free. FG assures Nigerians


Background 
  • Nigeria is currently battling with the Type C Meningitis and the federal government is making efforts to ensure effective vaccination. This Vaccination is free.
  • Following reports that some health workers were alleged to have extorted money and other forms of incentives from members of the public before being vaccinated, Faisal Shuaib, executive director, National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, NPHCDA, said;
  1. “The federal government had spent billions of naira to procure, store, maintain and distribute such vaccines to all parts of the country,” 
  2. “Under no circumstances should any health worker demand for money from members of the public for such services.”
Our take on the matter
  • Good one Mr. Faisal for timely informing Nigerians.
Conclusion
  • The love of money is indeed the root of evil. In the face of a life threatening situation some selfish people will still have the heart to con their fellow citizens before immunising them or their children which normally should be free.
