How Jos community rejected polio immunization over hunger

Unread postby Wsj » Tue Jan 31, 2017 3:45 pm

The ongoing polio immunization in the country has been rejected by some communities in Jos North Local Government of Plateau State, saying vaccines should be replaced with food as they are hungry.

This was disclosed by Mrs Hannatu Davat, the Local Immunization Officer, who said they have refused to participate in the on-going immunization exercise against polio.


Davat said, “The communities have shunned entreaties by the immunization officers; they say the vaccine should be replaced with food.

The exercise, which began on 28th January, 2017, is co-sponsored by the local government in collaboration with the World Health Organisation, UNICEF and the Rotary Club.

The four-day exercise is targeted at immunizing children below five years against polio and other killer diseases including hepatitis, measles, yellow fever and tetanus.

The Local Immunization Officer explained that the parents, who rejected the vaccine, asked government to rather work towards slashing the prices of food items.


She said that other residents, who refused to participate, claimed that they had collected too many rounds of the vaccination, while others described the vaccines as “’western medicine.”

The officer further said that even doctors rejected the vaccines on the grounds that government was paying too much attention to polio while neglecting other serious diseases.

“The local government has reported the development to the Plateau chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), who have promised to ensure that no doctor rejects any polio vaccines meant for children.

“One of the doctors mentioned Mumps as one of the diseases being neglected, and described it as a serious disease which government hardly worry about,” Davat said.


She said that the local government had set up a social mobilization team that was moving through affected communities to sensitise them on the importance of taking the vaccines.

“Based on such efforts, some of the communities have changed their initial stance and are ready to bring their children, but others have remained adamant,” she said.

The officer, who refused to name the specific communities, however revealed that three wards were involved.

“We have seven rounds of immunisation this year and this is just the first round; if we are not able to resolve the lingering issues, we shall forward them to the state office for further action,” Davat said.
