Dada said the state government had set up 1,615 teams of medical experts and 2,454 posts in the state to be manned by seven personnel per team during the exercise.

He emphasized that the posts were being situated in hospitals, primary health care centers and other designated places.

Dada said the team comprised two medical experts, two vaccinators and a recorder as well as town criers.
He said the exercise was organized by the federal government to close up the gap that might have been created by routine immunization and would take place in all the states in the Northern Region.

Dada said doctors, primary health care assistants, technicians and hospital assistants have been groomed for the exercise.

He said Adversed Event Following Immunization (AEFI), kits would be provided at each post that would take care of side effects of the vaccines.

The manager said the AEFI activities would last for 42 days to ensure children that develop side effect after the exercise are taken care of. Enditem
