” Let me say we have not recorded any case of outright rejection of the vaccine in Kano. We cannot deny the fact that people are still nursing fear about the vaccine perhaps because of the fake news in circulation insinuating different account which is not true.

“We are improving awareness and that was the whole essence of this workshop for journalists to help educate the public about the significance of the vaccine. We believe by bringing the vaccine closer to the people that will attract more people to take.

“But we know, there are some people no matter the level of persuasion, they will not take the vaccine in fact, they will prefer local medicine. But for us to guarantee sustained immunity we need to have 80 percent of the population vaccinated. It is part of human practice, we had similar experience during polio immunization where people became skeptic about the vaccine but as time goes on the entire community accepted the vaccine.

“We have had so many falsehood and negative narrative from those who doesn’t have authority or expertise in the area. The vaccine is safe and underwent clinical process certified by experts. That is why we are engaging the media to help create awareness. The vaccine is free and it is available across the state”.

He stressed that health workers would be deployed across wards and local governments apart from those stationed at general hospitals across the state.
