A statement by a Communication Specialist with United Nations Children’s Fund Eva Hinds said the Nigeria 2017 Demographic Health Survey, revealed that only 65 percent of eligible Nigerian children receive their first dose of measles vaccine every year, lamentimg that in Borno State, this low coverage has led to the deaths of at least 13 children in the current measles outbreak.

It said in order to tackle the growing cases of measles, the Federal Government is working with UNICEF and the World Health Organisation.

According to the statement , “Following a growing number of reported cases of measles, the Government of Nigeria, in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund and World Health Organisation, will conduct a vaccination campaign in Borno to protect 1.7m million children aged 6 months to 10 years against measles.”

The statement added that the campaign will run from March 21 – 25, 2019.
