Immunization against Meningitis in neighbouring communities

Hits: 186

As a result of the harsh weather in the country leading to recent outbreaks of meningitis, Premiere Academy decided to support neighbouring communities with an immunization and sensitization programme against meningitis and other related diseases.

The main idea of the programme was to focus more on areas more prone to the disease, due to environmental factors and poor social amenities like unstable power supply and inadequate health facilities. Such factors prompted their first exercise at Government Secondary School Lugbe, Abuja, where they immunized over one thousand individuals comprising of students, staff and parents.

The team was impressed with the turn up of the students, and made a pledge to visit other neighbouring public schools in order to sensitize and immunize as many individuals as possible.
